Friendliness, Compassion and Kindness

I just moved to Meridian Idaho.  This is a place where, it seems, that friendliness, compassion and kindess are instilled from birth, in the people who reside here.  It is not just a way of making a sale, but a way of making life.  I have found that Meridian's citizens truly care about how you are rather than who you are.  There's no "keeping up with the Joneses," no road rage, no undue competition for your attention, no unnecessary hurry in this town of combined farmland and city dwelling.  Churches giving worshippers of every Christian denomination a home and community abound on large plots of land and are busy feeding their flocks many times during the week, not just on Sundays. 

Where you have to be reminded where God is and who to trust, say on the main drag in and through Las Vegas... can see God herein all the genuinely friendly, compassionate and kind people of Meridian.

I am looking forward to living simply Catholic here.
