N = Neighbors

Like what I've said in my other blog, we were very blessed to have very great people as our neighbors. We treat each other like family, and we really can count on each other to something very simple as asking for a teaspoon of salt, to something big - like when I called on our neighbor at 5AM to help us rush dad to the hospital because he was having a heart attack.



Trip to Jerusalem

This picture was taken 30 December last year, when the close neighbors had a post-Christmas pre-New Years Day party. Each of the household has to come up with a game and one of the neighbors thought of "trip to Jerusalem." It was a great game to play and looked at how my mom danced! She's the one in purple, left side. =)

Having great neighbors like them really makes life better. Less stress, and there's a deeper sense of friendship in between us that makes us feel we have someone to share triumphs and sorrows.

In my country we say: "It's better for you to have a good neighbour than a good relative"!

Great choice for 'N'.
Neighbours can be closer than 'family'.

There is nothing like having good neighbors. Though we have been in our new house a little over a year we have met many of the neighbors that live on our street. I feel I could go to any of them if I needed help. We always wave and chat when we see each other.

Good neighbors make all the difference. Lucky I like mine too!

Reader Wil said...

I agree with you: good neighbours are very important. When I ever move house, I hope I can take all my neighbours with me!

Good neighbours are priceless. We have good neighbours right now on both sides of us. In the past we haven't always been so lucky.

I think when we move, I'm going to have to interview the owners of the houses to each side of the one we're thinking of buying!

neighbourly person! I tend to drive out of the garage and on my way. My husband, who tinkers with the car and tends our tiny front 'garden' knows all the neighbours and says they're great!

I love my neighbors, too.

Having trouble meeting your neighbors? Just get a puppy and walk it up and down the street.
