Neighbors....

How many of us actually get to know our neighbors? The one's we live next door to for "X" number of years? I finally broke out of my shell when we lived on Christine Drive and got to know the neighbors across the street and boy, I'm SO glad I did!! They have a VERY similar family as we do! Angie and Seree have been married for 9 years just like Phil and I.....they were married the week before us the same year!! They have Jaiden who's eight right now....like Jonny. Trevon who's six just like Davy, Syria and Jesse were born a month apart. Quentin is a year older than Reuben but right around the same age!

They homeschool their kids and go to Church. We have one of those don't talk for awhile friendships where we pick right back up where we left off!! It's SO wonderful! I hope to continue to be a blessing to her as she is to me. I also hope to become better friends. We went over there yesterday to play and the boys had the best time EVER!!! We hadn't seen them since we moved in November! Anyways, I just think getting to know your neighbors and witnessing to them might lead to wonderful life long friendships. So, push yourself out of your comfort zone and get to know the people who may one day be a bosom buddy!!!

Ya.... I don't know any of our neighbors besides the family across the street. =/ I know all "about" the others around me though. Haha, I could tell you what they do for a living but I couldn't tell you anything more. So sad, so sad! I've got to get better at that. Thanks for the reminder and inspiration!
