A Wonderful Surprise

Updated on September 28, 2012

Just Because

Here it is a new day and the weather a bit rainy

My next door neighbor brought a dish full of pumpkin muffins

Hot from the oven and they smell so good

They taste even better one right after the other

What a great way to say hello

So often we all get too busy and forget

Our quiet neighbors who are across the street only fifty steps door to door

We are blessed with the nicest neighbors and once and awhile

I see her watering her gorgeous plants

We give a big wave and a loud hi then we are off

Other times she is outside with her dog Benji who is a little light brown peanut

Who likes to bark and tell us that he is a guard dog but nobody wants to listen

He stands his ground and barks

Until he is shushed and told to cut it out

Followed by go lay down

Thank you so much for bringing delicious food into our day

I would eat all the muffins if my wife left the kitchen

Now I am eating left over crumbs because they are the only thing left on the napkin

What a way to start the day with a cheerful smile and a homemade sweet

Happiness that starts small and works its way to the top in all the right spots

      Gypsy Rose Lee My wife loves to bake and blueberry muffins are in the oven as soon as they cool they are coming your way with happiness and a great big smile.Always nice to have new neighbors even if they are a little bit down the road.

      Delightful. Yes, sometimes the little gestures mean the most. Unfortunately we have no neighbors like that around here and most of them just keep to themselves. Send over some of the next batch of muffins you get. lol Never seems to be enough time for baking.

      There is truly no better way to show your appreciation than to bake or cook something for someone else. Its one of the best acts of kindness - specially for my tummy!
