7 Day's of Valentine's: A Beautiful Day For a Neighbor

It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood,
A beautiful day for a neighbor.
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?...

It's a neighborly day in this beauty wood,
A neighborly day for a beauty.
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?...

I've always wanted to have a neighbor just like you.
I've always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you.

So, let's make the most of this beautiful day.
Since we're together we might as well say:
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?
Won't you be my neighbor?
Won't you please,
Won't you please?
Please won't you be my neighbor?
-Fred Rogers
I grew up knowing my neighbors, and even my grandparents neighbors. It was common to share when you baked something. A piece of freshly baked pie, a couple of cookies, serving of soup, etc. Nothing huge, the most important part of this sharing was the human contact.

Cooking up a batch of brownies.
I feel it's important for my children to learn the importance of caring about those around you, and what better way to learn that, than neighborly visits?

All Bundled up and ready to share.
