A 15-year-old boy showed his love to his elderly neighbors by helping them with their chores and taking care of them.
Romemylion Mitchell met his elderly neighbor in Hampton, Virginia while he was taking out the trash one day. That’s when he saw his neighbor, who had an amputated leg, struggle to get their trash out. So, being kind and loving as he is, he went out to help them. They immediately created a friendship.
Every day after school, he would come home to finish his chores and then head across the street to help his neighbors with their chores. He would also accompany his neighbor to the store and help them buy groceries. He also unloads the groceries for them, cuts the grass, and does some other chores around the house.
The young teen doesn’t want anything in return, he was just glad to help the elderly couple. When the wife of his neighbor fell sick, Romemylion went with them to the hospital. Upon seeing the elderly woman, he immediately hugged her and they both cried.
“When he saw Mom today he busted out crying and just held her tight.. what a blessing and just wanted to pass on something heartwarming instead of the sad news we see and hear every day,” the couple’s daughter wrote in a Facebook post.
“Love your neighbors as you love yourself”
Tiki Joyner Edwards, the daughter of the neighbor, captured the touching moment in a photo and posted it online. She thanked the young boy for the love and care he showed to her parents.
“I just want to take a moment and recognize this sweet fella that lives across the street from my parents. He checks on them every day and has grown to love and care for them deeply. He rides with Dad to the store, helps him shop, and brings the groceries in.. he cuts the grass and whatever they may need. Not many 15 yr olds would take the time to care and be there for elderly neighbors.”
Just as Jesus commanded us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves, Romemylion showed that kind of love. May this 15-year-old boy be blessed by the Lord for his kindness and love!
