Still building that community…

With my closest Small Town friend having recently moved away, I find myself once again musing about building community. It’s hard to believe that it has been over a year since we moved to Small Town and while my circle of acquaintances is growing, my list of local friendships is lacking. The fact is that I need friends more than they need me to be their friends, so I need to make more effort than the other person. The plan is to “target” a few people and make intentional moves to build friendships. I just ran across this article and I think it has some good ideas.

I don’t think I’d go right up to a neighbor’s door I’d never met, but I would go to one I had met and take cookies, or some other “gift”.
