The NON-Superwoman

Wow. I had a similar event happen last year that I blogged about. I've been praying for an open door with my neighbors ever since. May we all learn to be more neighborly!

Send them a note and tell them what you just would bless them, I know!

Maybe it will also open a door for relationship...

Blessings on you today, Joanne~ praying for God's best to you and your family,

Oh, that's so sad. Praying for your neighbors!


I honestly can't imagine that they wouldn't appreciate your concern with a simple doorbell 2 minute face-to-face saying that you saw all the activity and was wondering how you could be of a help in any way. I always appreciated it when people showed up, wrote or called after my mom matter how they were connected to her. Have's a risk worth taking! :)


I bet they would really appreciate you knocking even if it's just to give them some cookies or something and introduce yourself and let them know you've noticed and have been praying for them.
