I’ve lived in different sized cities and towns both in the states and overseas. There are pros and cons for living in a small town.
I like to be part of the community; volunteering and even being part of other people’s lives, making a difference.
Sometimes it takes a long time to be accepted in a small town. Typically, I don’t like being the center of attention, especially the focus of gossip.
However, sometimes it’s appropriate to be the center, like on my birthday. On Facebook, I received over a dozen birthday wishes from friends/family, and writer friends.
That was nice.
Even my small town remembered me in an unusual way. I got a recorded phone message from the local drug store, singing happy birthday and wishing me the best for today.
That’s a first.
May all you days be filled with warm wishes and great birthdays. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
