Be Neighborly

Right in front of my house lives an old person, all by himself. He is about 80 something years. His only support is his sister, who occasionally comes to visit him. Sometimes is our daily routine we don´t have time to stop and care for the needs of others, even if they live right across our street. Now what I do is I from time to time I take him a cup of coffee and some bread, and I have identify that what he needs more is someone to talk. He spend so much time alone, it is sad. I try to spend time with him and one can tell by face that he enjoy the company even if is for a couple of minutes. What stories do you have with you neighbours? Have ever went to a neighbour you never met before and introduce yourself?

  2. yesterday my friend and I went to lunch, as we walked in the place we noticed an older man sitting in the parkinglot, we invited him in for lunch...he ate, but more than anything he talked, telling us how he had lost his home and now lived on the streets. We made sure he had enough to eat, offered him a ride which he declined, gave him some money...he hugged us and went on his way with a smile....I think like your nieghbor he just craved human company:)

  16. Good for you Venus! I'm a big believer in that the good a person does eventually comes back to him or her, and it seems like you do a lot of good.

    I'm not so good with people or strangers, but I'll work harder at it in the future.

  21. That's really sweet of you. I move around too much to get to know my neighbors at all, but I'll admit I don't really try to. I do generally try to be courteous, though.

  24. I love my neighbors, we have a great neighborhood, we get together for neighborhood parties all the time. With summer coming, there will be grilling, and people all gathering at one of the neighbor's houses with a pool and we all generally get along well. My family is actually hosting a party the weekend before memorial day weekend.
