A few from Sharingwood recently Sitting in a low grade funk and having a two year old come up and tell you all about their day and then realizing that the funk is gone and I'm smiling. Creating a surprise wedding shower for a couple that never had one (they sort of eloped). They were very delighted. Grabbing a rake meaning to clean up the fallen leaves and finding not only that somebody did the job, but they created piles in such a way that the kids could jump into them, a touch I would not have thought of and something I learned for next time. Having an intense conversation with another adult about one of their problems, helping them find their needs, and then feeling wonderful when the whole situation worked out excellently. And then finding a loaf of fresh made banana bread-still warm- with a simple note of thanks. Extra wonderful! Sitting quietly watching a squirrel collect cones to cache, and being joined, one by one, by 12 other people, who all spontaneously cheered as "our" squirrelly chased off another interloper who was intent of pilfering all that hard work. There was a need for some extra computer storage, and within an hour no less than 3 zip drives are offered, and 20 zip disks. Just about everyday some little thing goes on which shows you that the people who live here care about each other.
