You can choose your house, but you can’t choose who lives next door, right? It helps if you like that person, or those people, as data indicates that if you can’t stand your neighbors, you may have an increased risk of having a heart attack. I was very surprised to find out how many of my friends alone, not only dislike their neighbor, have had words or arguments with them too! Do you ‘love thy neighbor?’
I feel lucky and super blessed, that I have always had AWESOME neighbors, who I really liked and vice versa! I cannot imagine what life would be like if I had neighbors who were always trying to make my life miserable or let their home and yard become a big outside garbage can!
My neighbors look out for me and we look out for them too. If we see them outside and look like they need a hand with a project of yard work we offer to help. We watch each others homes when we go on vacation and invite each other over for parties or just to sit & chat and have an occasional cocktail!
Do you love your neighbors? Or are you like the Hatfield’s & McCoys…always fighting?
