month of gratitude #7

Today I am grateful for my neighborhood. As long as my husband and I have lived together we have lived on busy roads with no neighbors. We have never lived where there weren't cars whizzing by at light speed. We have not lived where you could take a walk down the street without risking our very lives. Let our kids ride their bikes down the street? I don't think so.

Now we own our home in a quiet neighborhood in a town we love. We have friendly neighbors and safe streets where we can walk and ride bikes. We actually have trick-or-treaters! I can promise you that there wasn't much foot traffic on the Indy Speedway looking for fun size Snickers bars.

It is calm and peaceful, and I am glad we were able to make a home here!
