The more we become globalized, the smaller our world becomes. Social media has really made making connections easier. On Twitter I received a mention about our Anniversary from an acquaintance in England. As Dale and I looked at our individual Facebook
Pages the day of and the day following our 25th Wedding Anniversary ~ we read many wonderful comments for us from our family and friends.
On the local area level, Bill Dean announced our Anniversary on KWLM radio and Steve posted Happy Anniversary Dale / Tami on the Atwater Community Billboard in the downtown railroad park. Our church prayed for us. We received a few cards in the mail as well as a few phone calls and “Happy Anniversary” or “Congratulations” from friends on the street.
When people ask us about why we live in a small town, they say, “what do you do there?” I remember someone asking me if I watch the corn grow? Living in a small town
is great, because of the people ~ after all that is what living in a small town is all about.
This past weekend we had our annual All School Reunion, it is very obvious that the people who attended the reunion had a great experience growing up in our little school. They are the people who know what we do in a small town.
Thank you everyone for all of the well wishes for our 25th Wedding Anniversary ~ we are blessed with a supporting community of family and friends.
