Good Neighbors

I received this beautiful bracelet from my neighbors, Holly and Ken.  They gave it to me to thank me for watching their dogs.  I love it, but I am even more grateful for having such good neighbors.

We have lived across the street from each other for about fourteen years.  Four years ago when I was laid up with a fractured foot and ankle, they watched out for me.  I had surgery to put a pin in my foot, and for four weeks I was confined to the house.  I couldn't put any weight on my foot, and was restricted to using a knee cycle.  They brought me my mail, and Ken kept my driveway clear.  It was February and we had a lot more snow that year than we have had this year.  I will be forever grateful for their help and support.

While we have always been friendly toward one another, I am an introvert, and it is just this past year that we have really gotten to know each other.  As a result, they took care of Winnie and Chloe when I went to Spain.  The hardest part of traveling has always been having to leave my dogs.  This made such a world of difference.  To reassure me, Holly sent me pictures throughout the week, so I knew the dogs were happy and safe.  It was wonderful!  I am grateful that I was able to do the same for them during this past week.

I love my home, and I love my neighborhood.  These wonderful neighbors have made it ten times better than ever.  They also have two adorable little dogs who I definitely fell in love with during this past week.

  1. Barb, we feel the very same about you and your little ladies! Thank you for taking such great care of our girls this week. I look forward to spending more time together, especially when it warms up.
