Pay it Forward - Guests for the Holiday
One of my neighbors has been in and out of the hospital with medical problems for the better part of the past few months. This week found him in the hospital once more and with the approaching of the Jewish Holiday, I was concerned about both him and his wife - where would they be spending Rosh Hashana.
He was hopefully going to be released from the hospital in time for the Jewish New Year - and going to the nearby rehab center. But, his wife would be home alone for the holiday.
I quickly called and invited her to join my husband and I for the holiday meals. I was delighted to have a guest for the holiday and she was happy not to be alone. A win-win all around and a great way to start the New Year by paying it forward.
