Neighborly Kindness & Empathy (Especially During The Holidays)

“I think being a neighbor starts with kindness and empathy. You don’t have to show up with a fresh apple pie or anything like that. It’s just making somebody feel welcome.” – Chris Loggins

Exactly. Whether for a neighbor figuratively or literally, kindness and empathy go a very long way toward others. The last 18+ months have been challenging, heartbreaking and stressful for everyone around the globe. This holiday season, take a walk in any of your neighbor’s shoes and think to yourself “what kindness can I show them?”
