Take turns driving
My neighbourhood is about 8 kms from the town centre. Sometimes I drive the neighbours kids to school, sometimes they pick my kids up. If there’s an evening meeting more than one of us has to attend, we go together. It makes a difference. And let’s face it, sometimes the journey (even if it’s only 8 kms) is more fun than the destination. If my neighbour goes to town on the weekend to pick up some groceries, she’ll text to see if I need anything and vice versa. It takes a neighbourhood to raise, well, neighbours! And I’m grateful my daily life has so many opportunities to intertwine with people who surround me.
