Won’t You Be My Neighbor

Fred Rogers who was known as Mr. Rogers sang to children of all ages “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” for years on his show Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. It’s a classic reminder of a call to friendship.

Who are our neighbors? Well everyone you meet. It’s more than the people who live around where you live. It’s important we understand that because it makes the world our neighborhood.

In my faith loving your neighbor as yourself is a serious thing. Offering people grace and kindness can be a tall order because there are some folks you like and a few you don’t like so offering them both love can be a challenge. We can be exhausted in being nice but it’s worth it.

My friends you are my neighbor just for visiting my blog. Liking my posts and commenting on them are a plus. For me, treating you all with kindness and being nice is something i’m hard wired to do. It’s also an extension of my extending grace to everyone. I do believe there are some who needs more grace and kindness because their lives have been tough.

Thank you for being my neighbor.
