A few years ago, a new family moved in next door to us right at Christmas. They came to our door to say “hello” and I handed them a plate full of Christmas cookies I had made. I never knew Christmas cookies could mean so much but I guess when you are moving at that time of year it is a little hard to hang on to the Christmas Spirit. Having a plateful of cookies to munch on while trying to put a new household together probably helped a bit.
We were only neighbors for a short time before we moved to our new home. In that short time I came to know this couple as the warmest and most welcoming people I had ever met. And so creative! They completely remodeled that house in nothing flat and it was gorgeous. Where they got the energy for everything they did I will never know. They did have a lot of help from family, some of whom drove up from Miami to help out!
I had to park my car outside the garage one night right after they moved in which was very unusual for me. So, there I was hurrying to go somewhere and faced with a frost covered windshield. I started scraping away and muttering under my breath when suddenly there was Joseph, the husband, taking the scraper out of my hands and telling me to get in the car and stay warm. I protested; I wasn’t going to leave him to do the whole job alone. He laughing insisted and said that’s what neighbors were for! You gotta love a guy like that…
When we started remodeling our new home, Kathy and Joseph had already researched the best deals and the best workers. They shared all their information and their help was invaluable to us. We wish they were still our neighbors!
I wanted to make this card as a “Thank You” gift for them to use however they might like. With their beautiful, close group of family and friends, I know there will be an occasion for them to use this card
Let me hear from you. I love getting your comments! Blessings and Hugs!
