Small Town Living - Part Two
The Gossips Courtesy of All Posters
As I got home, Wednesday,
from a whole day
at the hospital with Georgia
I was tired to the bone.
Climbing out of the car my neighbor,
and friend, Ellen
called out to me.
She had news.
Sad news, about a former neighbor.
We chatted a bit.
I told her about Georgia
and eventually I came inside to
get dinner prepared.
The next morning on this blog,
there was a sweet supportive comment
from another neighbor/friend, Judy.
She had heard about Georgia from Ellen.
Does this make me a part of the "network?"
Do you remember this painting by Norman Rockwell
that shows regular folks on the telephone,
one after another, sharing some piece of
Sometimes it can seem like gossip...
Sometimes it probably is gossip...
but not this time.
This was about caring and sharing.
This was about community.
Thanks Ellen...Thanks Judy!
I like being a part of
your Small Town.
