My Neighbors Christmas Gift!!

Cold and sleet, snowing beyond belief
Opened my back door for our dog to get relief
On my porch sat a green wrapped gift
With a bright bow tied around it.

Oh,, my who sent us this
Didn’t come through the mail
Must have been hand delivered
Just for us, was it my neighbor?

I brought inside and opened the card
It was from my neighbor,, Alana with the big heart
I opened the card to read, how much she appreciates us
As her neighbor and friend, oh,, I am so pleased..

Rain or shine, whenever she walks by, if I am outside
She stops to talk, catch up, with our lives
Our dogs Tucker and Simba have play dates once in awhile
We laugh at their antics,, two males dogs,, they go wild.

We have talked and shared about gardening ideas
She has bought a painting from me, and displayed it proudly
Her sweet smile and good mornings make my heart pleased
I watch out for her and she watches out for me..

Years in age we differ, that never mattered
We found common bonds, our pets and gardening
Our lives are so different, I am retired she works hard
She is like a daughter to me two doors down.

So my Dear Alana,, you made my day,, what goes around
Comes around,, watch your doorstep carefully
When you don’t expect it,, as you did to me
A gift from the neighbor lady you shall receive..

Merry Christmas to you and yours,, I Thank the LORD for you
My one neighbor who loves me for who I am
Lets me walk through her woods on fungi hunts
And always has a smile, big heart, and warm hands.

In times like this where neighbors don’t know
Who even lives next door to them,, always on the go
Don’t take time to find them out, speak or wave
When out and about on their busy day.

My friend Alana and neighbor, Is an angel in disguise
My heart is full today, with her love and generosity.
I will enjoy every cookie, and sweet because I know she put this together
With love for my family.

MY SURPRISE TODAY 12/15/09— WHAT A BEAUTIFUL WORLD..
