drove by or walked by someone's house all the time admiring something
and wishing you had it in you to stop the car, knock on the door and tell the homeowner?
i think about it often...
but never have.
i have this hedge on my front fence that has been growing for about 8 years now.
about this time it begins to bloom and it is a beautiful sight.
i've had many friends and neighbors comment on it
but i've never had someone take the time to knock on the door.
until today, that is...
what a lovely gesture! i can't tell you how nice i thought that was...
it brought a smile to my face and made my heart happy.
not so much because she admired my rose bush, but because there are still people in this world who share a sense of a 'small town' connection with those around her. i wish people were more willing to talk to their neighbors, smile and wave to passers by or simply tell someone "yours roses are beautiful."
to whom ever you were that knocked on my door today, thank you for being warm at heart.
