LIKE A GOOD NEIGHBOR...
The story told of asking children what they needed to live. "Food," came one response. "Water" and "a house" were volunteered. Then a young girl said firmly, "A neighbor."
This caused me to reflect on the many neighbors I have had in 27 different homes. In only three locations did I have neighbors from hell. Most of the locations yielded persons who pretty much kept to themselves but I knew I could call on them if I needed to. Four of the locations actually blessed me with neighbors who basically saved my sanity by their existence in my life. There is a very long story involved with each of the bad neighbors and the four heavenly neighbors. Perhaps I'll do a follow-up on them one at a time in later blogs.
Right now I am experiencing a new kind of neighbor. My blog neighbors. It would be such a pleasure to live next door to most of my followers and those I follow. We have shared some of our most precious memories and secrets and daily experiences. We're a lot like best friends. Like a good neighbor......bloggers are there!
Hope you all have a HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
