Supportive Neighbors

Five months and a half after we moved into this house, the household, who lives next door, came to visit us and to get to know us closely, I had used to say hello to her and ask her to pass by whenever I would see her on the road by coincidence, but she would always apologize, either because of the lack of time, or because she feels too shy.

When she first entered our house, the household sat down apologizing and saying: “Forgive me for taking this step forward very late, neighbors are obliged to stand by their neighbors. How can I help you? What can I do for you? We know that you’re going through a tough crisis, and this is what was hurting my soul and holding me back from visiting you, please forgive me!”

The household’s visit boosted our morale very much; since the moment she entered the house she made us feel that we are not alone, there are people that stand by us, feel with us and want to help us with very good intentions. This small visit helped us forget a lot of the misery that we endured, reminding us of our home, our neighbors and our families, and reminding us that the good still exists in this world.
