“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'” Luke 10:27
Over the years we have been blessed by wonderful neighbors. When our children were young, we lived next door to a family with four children close in age to ours. We sometimes joked that we should simply install revolving doors in our houses because we never knew how many children would end up where. Shared meals, sledding parties, borrowing the proverbial cup of sugar, combined birthday parties – so many life events were made sweeter by sharing them.
A move to a new house brought new neighbors. We have been blessed by gifts of homemade maple syrup, the welcome sound of a plow clearing away mountains of snow, and the joy of a Christmas cookie exchange.
I give thanks for neighbors who offer caring and thoughtfulness.
What are you thankful for today?
