An act of kindness brings people together

A widowed friend moved into a neighborhood where most of the people had families and worked full time. She introduced herself to the women across the street who happened to be pregnant. The women did not know anyone in the area either.

So, this friend offered to give the woman a baby shower. She invited all the neighbors. It was a lovely shower, but the most important outcome was neighbors getting to know each other; some after many, many, years living in their houses not knowing their neighbors.

What a generous gift, not only the pregnant woman, but to everyone on the street. The baby shower brought everyone together for the shower - but the friendships made will last much longer.
