Tonight something wonderful happened. Neighbors actually walked down the street, knocked on our door, came in and stayed for dinner. Amazing. Amazing because we have lived in our house for a year and have only spoken with anyone that lives around us one or two times. Some of that is due to the interesting-ness, shall we say, of some of our neighbors and the rest of it can be attributed to the fact that none of our friends live within walking distance; when we’re being social we’re either elsewhere with them or in our house behind a shut door. Anyway, we were thrilled to learn that a couple of guys from our church moved in one block down last week. I guess they don’t count as new friends, but they are new neighbors and they did take us up on our offer to wander down anytime. And I’m glad.
