NEW YEARS DAY-January 1st 2011 - I had a New Year's Day celebration planned for my family today when things changed with the head count. As I was preparing dinner and everyone was scurrying about the house I suddenly see the ambulance in my next door neighbors yard.  The couple that live there are elderly. She is in her mid-eights and he is 91. She is rather frail and crippled up and has taken a few falls these last five years. He is rather spry for his age actually and manages to get around though slowly.

 

The Macguire's have been a happily married couple for many years and raised three children who have added to the family by having 4 children and then there are the grandchildren. They had hoped that their kids would be over to cook dinner today but that didn't come to pass as it turned out. They were sick and didn't want to possibly spread germs to these elderly people.

 

After watching the paramedics  go into the house I thought I'd go over to see what happened. The Mrs. had taken a fall, once again and Mr. Macquire called for help. Well they took her to the hospital and I drove Mr. to the Emergency Room and stayed there until they got her settled in a room.  Fortunately she didn't break any bones but was bruised a bit and dazed from the fall.

I brought Mr. Macquire home with me and brought  him to my house and he stay with us for dinner. He was so grateful that someone was there to help him through the ordeal.  He was relieved to hear that his wife was ok and that there was nothing serious going on.  It goes to show that from day to day you never know what's going to happen.

His daughter showed up later at our house and took him back home. It was good to be of help in time of need. I would hope someone would look after me or my family if they needed help.

Patricia - God sent an angel to help the Macquires... It was so nice of you to have him at your home while he waited for his daughter. Neighbors need to get to know each other, just like you did.

Not only was it a nice thing to do, it was the right thing to do...well done Patricia.  Having caring neighbors is such a wonderful feeling...I'm sure the Macquire's were grateful for your help.

Hi Loreena, thank for stopping by to comment.  THings happen and we need to be there to help.  Neighborhoods aren't like they used to be where more of this took place on a routine basis.  How about going next door to borrow a cup of milk?? Those days are over!
