DOES ANYONE ELSE LIVE IN SUCH AN EMBRACING SITUATION?
When I am sick or want to hide and I do lock the door they will use their key, let themselves in, check on me and leave. Can't feel anymore cared for than that.
When I am on vacation they stop over and have a drink, pet and feed my cats and sit around and BS. The bar is always open.
What a privilege to live in such a caring community. Others point to us as unique. We are!
My home is always open. It came from my parents. When I was in high school, my place was where me and 12-20 of my friends headed most weekend nights. Mom and dad would be up playing cribbage, we'd all gather and talk, they would go to bed, we would turn off the lights and neck. We never went to anyone else's home.
I know that I am loved, accepted just as I am, and part of a community that cares.
