Crank it Up!

When we moved from a single family house to a two family, we were blessed with very quiet, rarely home downstairs neighbors.  Ah, I love my quiet!

Last July, we were blessed with new neighbors:  a lovely woman and her two daughters, both in elementary school.  We hit it off right away.  We have been able to bless each other and Isabella, my nine-year-old granddaughter has found new friends.

That being said, with a family, instead of two single people, living downstairs, I realize much more that this house wasn’t built with sound absorbing materials!

I hear myself in the voice of the mother trying to get her girls to school on time.  It is my voice that I hear when reprimanding is done a bit too harshly.  It is my family I hear laughing.

Sometimes looking in a mirror is difficult; sometimes it is sweet.  I am thankful for my new neighbors.

  1. I’m enjoying your posts, Gail. I have missed you!

    I wanted to let you know I got a job and will start on Tuesday. This has been a long 6 months!

    I left my email address in a comment on my blog. I didn’t want to post it publicly and I do not have your email address. Hope to hear from you……
