Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: The Kindness of Good Neighbors

thankful thursday blog hop maxwell 06062024

Hello everyone, it’s me Maxwell and I’m here for Angel Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Thanks to you all for stopping by. We are always thankful to each of you for joining us!  Each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to Angel Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do get excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today I want to say that we’re all thankful for the kindness of neighbors and let me tell you, we have some good ones. We know they are good, even if we do scatter when they come to visit. Actually, we have several good neighbors around here and the Dad and Mom both say that’s a good thing. Probably like you, they’ve had some not so good neighbors over the years.

Anyways, back to the thankful. Y’all remember a short while back that the Dad fell and hurt his foot big time. Nothing broken, just hurt. Y’all also know that our Dad cuts our grass with a battery powered push mower, we’ve showed you pics of that too. It’s not all that easy mowing the grass with a hurt foot and our Mom has a foot problem too. Well, our nice neighbors right beside us are having their lawn service person do our yard too for a couple of weeks so Dad’s foot can heal up. Isn’t that nice?!?! We’re super thankful for their kindness!

So, what are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  Hey Pet Bloggers, don’t forget to leave your daily link over at The Cat Blogosphere for a chance to grab an entry for the end of the month drawing.  Okay, that’s it for now!  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Oh wow, you really do have some nice neighbors! That is definitely something to be thankful about. XO

P.S. – we hope it’s okay that we added our post about Target to the hop. We are definitely thankful that he is part of our family now. (If it’s not okay, we will understand, and please feel free to remove the link.)

Dearest Terry,
We know too well that feeling of having great neighbors!
In our previous home, while we were abroad for Campbell Soup, a neighbor cut our lawn. Saying that it always looked so neat and he wanted it to continue that way.
Such people one can HUG!
Maxwell presented it so well and even if the kitties might scatter…

You really have a kind neighbor…..what a sweet gesture in sending their lawn service over to mow for you all while Dad’s foot heals properly. Good neighbors are the BEST! Thanks for hosting “Thankful Thursday” – we have so much to be thankful for.

That is very nice of those neighbors, and we hope the dad’s foot can heal up quickly. This is truly a perfect Thankful. We don’t say it enough, but me and dad are thankful for all our furriends in this fun little blogging world. Sometimes I guess we get so wrapped up in stuff we forget the little things in life.

What wonderful and very thoughtful neighbors you have, Maxwell!

Maxwell, that is terrific news to know that the neighbor is going to keep the grass mowed for you all. We were afraid your dad would be silly enough to try to hobble around behind the lawn mower. Good thing he is not.

Maxwell OMCs what a most wonderful set of neighbors to arrange for the lawn to be serviced while Dad’s foot heals. We have a few bad ones but they are forgotten when we remember that we have MORE THAT ARE EXCELLENT AND KIND.

They are wonderful neighbors! My family had neighbors like that when my brother and I were growing up. Their older son was my age, and I grew up calling them uncle and aunt.

Java Bean: “Ayyy, that sure is nice of your neighbors to help you out like that! We know it doesn’t take long for the yard to get out of control if it’s not mowed regularly!”
Lulu: “We actually kind of like it but apparently it provokes the HOA to send ‘nastygrams’, whatever those are …”
Charlee: “We hope Chipper is feeling better and his tummy troubles have all settled down!”

WOW!! That is EXTREMELY nice of your neighbors!!! But………I have a sneaky suspicion, knowing you the way that I do, that you and Mom are probably AWFULLY nice to them as well!!!!! But…..I think it is incredibly thoughtful. We need more people in the world like all of you!

That’s very nice, and well deserved as I’m sure your humans would do much the same. ~hugs~ Just today I wished a neighbor would cut our lawn but I guess all my garden beds intimidate him while using a riding mower; he offered to shovel snow we never got in return for other favors. Oh, well. Then again, it wouldn’t hurt to ask if he’d mow the main areas. Hmmm… Anyway, it’s wonderful not enduring any acrimony. Best wishes!

TBT: You definitely have some good neighbors! We do too and mostly we help each other. But I remember a bit of a song…

“The Lord above made man to help his neighbor,
No matter where, on land, or sea, or foam.
The Lord above made man to help his neighbor-but
With a little bit of luck, With a little bit of luck,
When he comes around you won’t be home!

Just kidding, LOL!

What wonderful neighbors!!! But no wonder….you are a wonderful neighbor yourself. Er…yourselves…I’m sure you kitties are loved around the block.


It is always wonderful when the neighbors are wonderful!
Long years ago we had them on both side and across the street. Now they aren’t bad ones…but they just seem to keep to themselves other than a wave now and then.

Such wonderful neighbours, precious Maxwell.
I’m sending prayers and good vibes for Dad and Mom to fell better and heal real soon.

Lots of love and pawsome hugs to all of you. xoxo
Thank you for hosting, we thought our post about summer ( despite feeling worn out by the summer heat) had a lot to be grateful for, so we hopped in.

Stay gorgeous. <3
