Our neighborhood association recently successfully completed a publication of the history of our area. So many people helped with research, editing, writing, and gathering of images. We had a lot of fun working on the project. Members held editing sessions at their homes and served delicious sustenance to keep us going.
My task was some photography and completing the lay out. Once the publication was handed out to neighbors, my co-conspirators presented me with a framed version of the publication. They had all signed it with warm thoughts for my meager contribution.
I just have to say it is wonderful to live in a neighborhood of such warm, thoughtful, caring, and involved people.
We all care about and support each other. We watch out for each other. I feel privileged to live here and thank all my friends for their gift.
Just think about your own community—whether it be your cubicle neighbors, your school friends, or your neighbors. Take time to get to know the people around you. Work with them. Cooperate with them. You will be triply blessed by the effort you put forth.
