Having nice neighbors is a blessing!

Even though Ron and I are not big fans of living in a subdivision, I do have to admit that it has been an absolute blessing to have some really nice neighbors! In my 17 months as a stay-at-home mom, I have had to call on my neighbors several times. My neighbor Rachel is a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom. She lives just two houses down. My neighbor Casey is a nurse who works part time and has a little guy Blaise who is the same age as Ronnie. She lives behind us and over one house. Both of these ladies have been a godsend to me when I have needed something. And today was one of those days.

Ronnie had a 3 hour nap today, so by the time he woke up, there wasn't enough time for me to run to the store to get some salsa and sour cream for our fajitas I was fixing for dinner. I sent a text message to Casey to see if she had some at home. She replied back that she was at Walmart and she could pick some up for me. What perfect timing!!!!! When she got here to drop off the salsa and sour cream, I told her I would write her a check, but she didn't want me to pay her for it. What a sweetheart! I plan to return the favor someday, even though she did not want me to pay her. Thank the Lord for friendly neighbors who go out of their way to help! I hope they see me as that kind of neighbor to them, I always want to be able to help someone when they need it.
