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!
