I had the privilege of giving out the first Kindness Card today. Here’s the back story.
My stove had recently died (I will spare you the details) and literally days later this is the email a kind neighbor sent to our neighborhood distro:
We are getting a new slide-in range and this one will be removed tomorrow.
Our microwave and dishwasher have died in the last six months and we will put the refrigerator in the basement so we were getting all 4 kitchen appliances replaced, so they match.
This is a 2002 GE Profile Electric cooktop with a convection oven. (Sorry, I don’t know the model number but probably have the booklet somewhere.) We have had no problems with it. There is some discoloration between the oven glass panes from a pressure cooker that boiled over.
The oven will be removed between 11-3 tomorrow, 3/28.
I may put it on Free cycle tonight if no one in the neighborhood needs it.
Let me know if anyone can use it.
How could she have known? She couldn’t have – she was just being generous. Now every time I cook I smile (not because I enjoy cooking) but I’m reminded of the kindness of a stranger and that warms my heart.
