Good Ol' Days
Today when James and I were out and about in the yard taking care of some things a neighbor from across the way came over, introduced himself and brought us a bear full of honey that they get from their own honey bees. The jester was kind and reminded me of the Good Ol' Days when people were neighborly, and shared with each other. James and I have been talking about the kind of town we want to choose to live in. A place where the grocery store may not have all the latest and greatest, but where people are polite, neighborly, and everybody knows your name. Everybody looks out for their friends and neighbors and everyone joins together when someone is in need. Yes there are still places like that and call me old fashion but my soul craves for that. This little bear showed me that there is hope and it was a sign to me that our dream of "our world" being as sweet as honey is a real possibility!
