Friday is for Heart Song’s
[UPDATE: My brother in South Carolina has probably been cutting his lawn for awhile but things are just starting to green up here. But that reminds me of a post from a few years ago and I would love to get some more ideas from my readers so here’s a short post from September of 2012 to help all of us express our love and care for our neighbors in more practical and tangible ways.]
I was mowing the lawn when the thought came. “What if we viewed our neighborhood as our family? How would it change the way we interacted with them?”
I know some of us don’t have very healthy families, but let’s give it a try. Take 5 minutes and brainstorm and think about it. Here’s some questions to prime the pump of your mind:
“If my neighborhood was my family, how would I interact with it / them on a daily basis?
“What would holidays look like if I treated my neighbors like family?”
“What would my interaction with my neighbor’s need be like if, when they had a crisis, I treated them like family?”
Think of five ways that your relationship with your neighbors would change. Share them here with the 2,000 subscribers to the blog.
