What's All The Fuss?

This afternoon I got a heart-stopping phone call.  My elderly neighbor's daughter called to say she was talking to her mom and all the sudden she heard the phone fall and she couldn't get back in touch with her mom.  She had been calling and calling and the phone just rang busy. My heart sank to my stomach and I ran out of the house full speed to find Mr. Yesteryear Acres. He dropped everything he was doing and we drove as fast as we could to our neighbor's house. I was terrified as I rang the doorbell.  What would we find?  How was my dearest sweetest most kindest neighbor?  I ran all the scenarios in my mind when Mr. Yesteryear Acres said, "why there she is".  My neighbor opened the door and I immediately hugged her so  hard.  My neighbor said, "What's all the fuss?"  Turns out she didn't drop the phone.  The connection was just lost and she was trying to call her daughter back at the same time the daughter was trying to call her back and the signals were busy on both ends.  I was SOOOOOO happy to see her.  I hugged her again and again.  Mr. Yesteryear Acres too.  What's all the fuss?  Oh nothing ........we just dropped by to say we love you!


  1. Thank goodness for neighbors like you who live near our elderly parents. My sister with Down Syndrome arrived home from work to find my mom had fallen on her front porch. She ran to the neighbors for help for Mom. Our neighbors called our family. Tonight my mom is recovering from from surgery to replace her broken hip! Thank you to caring neighbors...we love you all! Our 83 yr old mom will be dancing again!

    1. I am so glad your mom was able to get help!!!!! Hope her recovery is quick and she is up on her feet dancing in no time!
