Yesterday my sweet neighbor, who always brings me treasures, came to the door and asked if I liked tomatoes. We talked a while and he told me about some artwork his wife had made that I should see. A while later he said he was going to run home and come back with it. .
I guessed she might have painted flowers or trees or even animals. Boy was I wrong! He handed me the most unexpected piece of artwork I could’ve imagined 80-something year old Mrs Opal would’ve created! Her artwork is something she just started about 10 years ago! Mr Ray said he wasn’t sure she would be able to do it anymore after she broke her shoulder. He’s proud of her and it’s the best.
He stayed longer and eventually told me he checking on me because of “all the men here”. He stayed until well after they’d left. Then he came back later last night with his son to move some heavy things he thought I’d need help with. 💗
This morning he called with a name of a tradesman and said he had told his son that he had been a little disappointed with me. His son gave him a curious look and Mr Ray explained one of the roofers asked if he was my dad and I hadn’t claimed him. He said I should think of him as my second dad. If that doesn’t beat all...I love that God would move me to this little place in the country and give me a neighbor like that—who is an adoptive dad in real life and in every day life. 💗
