I think it's appropriate that the area of our neighborhood is called "The Village". I mean, it does take one to raise a family.
I love our neighbors. Truly. We have been so blessed to have people surround us that are not only kind but trusting and helpful. Our kids are their kids; theirs, ours. Sometimes it's the last minute coverage for childcare and sometimes, like today, it's the simple lending of an ingredient for a recipe.
Our corner of the world is awfully special.
And for this, I am thankful.
