Do I have great neighbors or what?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Marte Cliff Copywriting

Late this morning, as I sat working at my computer, the phone rang.

It was my neighbor. Now that always scares me a little - when he calls,the best neighbor I could ever havemy first thought is "What's wrong?" He drives his 4-wheeler down here every evening to chat, so isn't in the habit of telephoning unless he needs help - right now.

But nothing was wrong. His wife suffers from Alzheimers' and has in-home help - a lady who comes to bathe her, help her exercise, etc. And this morning, when the helper arrived, she told my neighbor that there was some mail laying on the ground beside our mailbox.

He went straight to the phone to call and let me know.

It was just junk - some ad inserts that had fallen out of a magazine - but how wonderful was it that she told him and he called us? It could have been something important - and by the time one of us walked back out to the road, the wind might have taken it away.

Good neighbors are truly a blessing, and I'm thankful every day that ours are the best of the best.

Marte- we met our neighbors when we first moved to FL about 25 years ago.  They became our extended family.  You do have a very good neighbor.

Marte - My husband was in the hospital last week and one neighbor (I don't know who) put my garbage bin back in its place behind my house.  Another one (or maybe the same one) put my newspapers on my front porch.  And, a third one dropped off a beautiful floral arrangement left over from a charity event.  Good neighbors are so important.  They add so much quality to our lives.  You are lucky and we are, too!

Kathy - Yes, our neighbors are our extended family as well. And I know we're important to them. Their kids (our age) are either too far away or too busy to bother with them much. Last week when Byron got news that an old friend had passed on, it was to our house that he came to cry.

Gail - Good neighbors are treasures - we need to be sure to let them know they're appreciated.

I certainly am. Tonight Byron came over to use his trimmer around the sides of my garden where the weeds have gotten away from me. I have one, but it's a wimpy battery powered trimmer. He said he could do it faster with his gas powered trimmer, so he did.
