The Perfect Friendship

My recent trip to our annual church gathering in Ft Worth caused me to reflect on friendships.  During my few days stay, I reconnected with many people I would include on my friends list.  Chatting with them and catching up on times spent together in the past was refreshing.

    In 2006, when a tsunami struck the coast of Thailand, an orphanage in Burma was washed away from a cyclone. The orphanage was home to approximately 50 children.  One young boy, age 12, helped all of the children escape the disaster by leading them up and away from the flooding waters.  Each one of the children survived, and the boy’s story made an impression on many of the folks that attend the People’s Church in Dalhart.  Members of the church embarked on a mission trip to see in what ways their congregation could help the children devastated by the loss of their only home.

“Can I make my neighbors reimburse me for what it cost me to have it cleaned up?”

Question:  Back when that really bad wind/snow storm hit Dalhart, and all of the tree limbs and branches were knocked down and were everywhere, two of my neighbors’ tree branches fell into my yard, one on one side of my house and two from the other neighbor’s house on the other side.  Both of my neighbors removed the biggest part of the tree limbs, but neither of them had all of the leftover debris picked up.
