For several years, the house next door to us has been for sale. We have watched the grass grow high, and the sign swing in the breeze. We had almost given up hope that it would sell, but a few weeks ago, it did. When I saw the “sold” sign, as I was leaving the house, I ran back inside to tell my family the good news. We would have new neighbors. This last weekend, new people moved into this house which has been so long waiting for a family. My mom baked brownies to welcome them. The house now looks almost alive, filled with life. It's a small thing, but it makes a difference.

It’s good to have neighbors.
