a House, a Home, a Community

There are lots of ‘houses’ on the market, and until you move in and make it yours it’s not a home… But a community is something special.

A community is where people come together. It may be because of where you live, what you like to do, things you are interested in and more.

This week I experienced community in my neighborhood. One of my neighbors had a serious accident. She is currently in the neurology ward at the hospital. Her family has come to town to sit by her side while she heals; and our neighborhood has come together to take care of feeding the family. It is a simple thing, providing a meal for others; it wasn’t just one person stepping up or volunteering to help. Everyone who knows her is helping.

Finding a house is easy. Having community is something that you have to participate in to have.
