“He drew a circle that shut me out-

Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.

But Love and I had the wit to win:

We drew a circle and took him In!”

— From the poem “Outwitted” by Ewin Markham

“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.” ~Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Good Neighbor Day was the idea of Mrs. Becky Mattson, who started the effort in the 1970’s to make this a National day.  In 2003, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution, sponsored by Montana Senator Max Baucus, making September 28, National Good Neighbor Day.

Do you have good neighbors?  Let them know.  Are you a good neighbor?  Do you even know your neighbors?  Next time you see your neighbors, smile and say hello.  A small gesture, but it might just be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake…” ~ Francis Bacon, Sr.
