Good friends are hard to come by...

But I have been very blessed. My neighbors and I have a boy and a girl the same age who have become best friends....so of course we started talking a lot. Over the past six months we have all become so close, even my husband, who is typically pretty antisocial.

We both have baby boys who are three months apart so that has been a big connection too. I lent her grocery money, she payed it back. She needed cheap child care to go back to work and I needed extra money so I now watch her boys (and she hooked me up with another neighbor friend of hers and I watch her kids too).

She was going to buy me a used baby swing, but then someone gave her an extra, so she gave me one.

The other day I had warned her that my phone may get disconnected because dh was out of work. Today her husband came knocking on my door to give me one of their phones because he said they didn't need two. Luckily my phone hasn't been disconnected and I think I will be able to pay it before it does shut off. They are always looking out for me.

I don't really have a point to this post, just wanted to say that there are still good people out there that truly care because they want to, not because they have to.

I haven't had friends since getting married and having kids...not true friends.

Awesome..That's how my sister and I are. She's not really my sister by blood. She's my sister by choice..And I LOVE her dearly...

That's great. Our neighbor is like that too as we are for her. Her husband was killed recently and it really has drawn us even closer together. We both trust each other. Her step daughter plays with our daughter. Her dog is protective of us like we are his family. It just works great! Sounds like you have great neighbors.
