It was a few winters ago.We had knee-deep snow on our driveway.I got ready with my shovel to clear nature’s undue kindness.I came out and saw a girl walking in,’Hi,Mrs. Asgar’ she said,’Can I clear your driveway?’ I was taken aback,she knew I did not recognize her.She reminded me she was my former student. As I was chatting with her,five of her friends joined us,they cleared my driveway like professionals.
Not to be outdone I roasted a turkey with all the fix-ins and dessert for the girls.I knew they were university kids and would like some home cooked meal.It was a pleasure cooking for these extremely thoughtful kids.
Only one girl knew me.The other girls were strangers. So I thought,’ Surely one good turn deserves another’.
