I am incredibly thankful that I have been blessed with good neighbours!
Growing up in my parents' home, we didn't always have the best neighbours. We actually had several sets of neighbours over the years. None of whom with which we were particularly close.
I'm a grateful that as an adult with my own home, I have been blessed with wonderful neighbours. In fact, I don't know what I would do without my neighbours sometimes.
When Mr. Twingle is out of town, they are MORE than happy to help out with the kids. Each week, M. pops over at 8:10 so I can put Boo & Pickle to bed instead of keeping them up in order to pick Pretty up from Brownies. This is a life saver as Pickle doesn't do well when she's over tired.
M. and I often share a cup of tea when I get home and talk about our days. Despite the 30 year age difference, I know I have a friend in this wonderful human being! She won't take payment of any kind for her generosity and so I often bake goodies for her and her husband, J. They tell me it's not necessary and I don't have to do it; but, they never say no to the muffins, pies and cakes I take over.
Thank you M. & J. for your friendship and generous spirit. You have no idea how much it means to me.
