Wonderful neighbors

I went down to check mail this evening and ran into one of my neighbors. He lives on my floor, down the hall and around the corner. He introduced me to his little boy and then told me this story. The man is 66 years old (he doesn't look a day over 50). He had cancer and was told he would not have any more children. But along came a son, who is now 10 years old, and the boy came to spend Christmas with his father. When I asked the young boy if he had a good Christmas, his face lit up and he nodded so hard I thought his head would pop off and roll away! I told both of them that when God brings a child to a family in those type of situations, it's the biggest blessing and the boy went over and hugged his father very tightly and smiled. That's what Christmas is to me. And this man reminded me once again that my good neighbors far and above make up for any that might not be as good. True blessings. -Claudia-

I'd love to see that little boy come back for New Year's Eve since we can see so many fireworks from our windows here.

That was surely a blessed Christmas. Good neighbors are hard to find! My husband and I have a few neighbors that even call us and check and see how we are doing. We both are blessed! Have a Happy New year

I would say that most of my neighbors are great. They are just a bit shy in the beginning until we begin to see each other everywhere!
