Friday morning, we had the joy of hosting a brunch for ladies in our neighborhood. It was a special blessing to fellowship with our neighbors. It seems in the culture we live in now, interactions with neighbors are just an occasional wave or a “hi” here or there. So, it was wonderful to be able to spend time with the ladies.
We had quite a spread of food, and the girls and Mom planned a wonderful menu including meat & cheese empanadas, ham/cheese casserole, fruit, veggies with dip, pumpkin scones (thanks, Anna Marie!), pie crust with cinnamon/sugar, pumpkin pound cake (thanks, Mrs. C.), and delightful hot drinks.
Instead of just breaking up into individual conversations, Mom asked if each lady could share how they came to the neighborhood. It was very interesting to hear the background behind the families being here, and we really enjoyed hearing their stories.
It was a special time with our neighbors. Maybe it’s something you might enjoy doing this holiday season in your home.
“… for better is a neighbour that is near than a brother far off” (Proverbs 27:10).
