In our neighborhood, people hang around and talk in all sorts of places. Here you see friends gathering in the frozen food section of Kroger.  I almost always seem to run into someone I know when we are shopping. What I like is that people have things to say to each other and are not too busy to talk. Some people find this annoying. They are in a hurry, want to get their to do items done…just get in then get out. Everyone is busy. Everyone has lots of things they have to get done all the time. Most people have very busy lives. The real question is what are you so busy doing that you don’t have a few minutes to talk to your neighbors?
Today if you have an opportunity to talk to your neighbor, slow down and chat. They may need a kind word and someone to listen. You may need someone to listen to you…I suggest the frozen food aisle as a good place to meet.
