I took a few great stories of kindness and went a different way with them, but the stories are worth checking out.
Ohio got some snow this weekend, LOL. It made national news!
It started Friday morning and started to let up Shabbos afternoon. I ventured out Sunday afternoon, expecting the main streets to be plowed but knowing the side streets wouldn't have been touched.
I don't know why I was surprised when, on my way home, I turned from the main steet to our side street, and came grinding to a halt in a pile of snow in the middle of the unplowed side steet.
After trying a few times to go forward/backward, I was about to call DH on my cell when two men, in two different cars, parked nearby and worked together to push me out and on my way!

Since a trip to Alabama to see my family recently, I have been a bit down on the NY area. People are not as nice, everyone is in a rush, it's just too much for me. Combine that with a lot of stress from all my responsibilities, and I've just been kinda overwhelmed.
Tonight, I got a call from a friend to invite me for Shabbos because she hasn't seen me in a few weeks. Even though it's only Monday, I already have plans. We had a nice conversation about her children's Purim costumes and we made plans to see each other during the week.
Then I got a call from another friend. He and his wife have an extra ticket to see a comic and they wanted to see if I wanted to come. Sure!
Then I got an email from one of the people I am actually going to for Shabbos this week. She told me that she's not quite sure what it is, but her children ask for me to visit every single week.
All this combined with being invited for Shabbos meals all the time, and having been invited to at least four Purim seudahs, and having a friend offer to stay home for the first days of Pesach and make seders for me when I told her that I am probably staying home. It feels really good to know that people are thinking about me.
