Love thy neighbor...

Why is this so hard some times?

I hate the saying,

"Good fences make good neighbors"

When we lived in Omaha,
very few neighborhoods had good fences.

The neighbor kids played in our yard,
and we were "family"!
I loved it! 

In Texas, we have small backyards,
and tall fences. 
We really don't know our neighbors.

Recently I realized how much I don't know my neighbors,
we wave from our drive ways,
and may even cross the street once a year to chat.
But, really they don't know that I really do care about them.

Recently, we found out about a neighbor in need.

And can I just say,
it has been so beautiful to see neighbors,
neighbors who don't know each other  -
willing to help! 

Our neighbors made up this basket of goodies 
for this family,
(more items arrived after I took the photo too
gift cards and cash were included!).

Just an encouragement here -
cause I need it too.
reach out to your neighbors! 
They may have a smile on their faces
when waving to you as they drive down the street -
but they may need you!
