  • It's morning - I just sat down at my desk to organize my day, and I hear the maintenance guy outside shoveling snow. He's a nice man from Newfoundland. He has a mustache, and kind, clear blue eyes. He always talks to the kids when they're playing outside - none of the other maintenance men even bother to smile.

    We've lived here almost nine years, and I only just realized how very grateful I am for this man, whose name I don't even know. Maybe I'll take a nice steamy cup of hot coffee out, and ask him.

    It's going to be a great day!
