It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.
So I have to ask you…do you know your neighbors? Do you want to?
This was mentioned as a friend pulled up in my driveway. “It’s different in your neighborhood. No one seems to talk to each other.” I am surrounded by renters instead of owners so my neighborhood is generally a little stand-offish. Every 2-3 months I get a new neighbor. And while I try to be friendly it is just not the same as someone who owns and lives next door for years.
While I don’t have close neighbors that live nearby I have great neighbors in town. I have great friends that I can call on. It is amazing how a friend can help so much more than a fence can. Instead of building a wall talk about what’s happening down the block. There might be a reason for something happening or maybe what is a big deal to you isn’t to someone else. It’s amazing what connection can do to help with life. So don’t be afraid to reach out. Create a card with something baked. Valentine’s Day is coming up. Use the holiday as an excuse to reach out.
