Our good neighbors, the Amish

Last week I had occasion to visit the Amish store and while there I had a small  issue. Nothing big, at least not to me, but I let someone in the community know. A short while later I received a gift from the store expressing gratitude for letting them know of a potential problem.  The gift was far from necessary, but what a treasure to have neighbors who graciously show their appreciation.  Our Amish community is a great neighbor. Thank You!
