“Just a small town girl, livin’ in a lonely world…”
I am a 40 year old woman who decided at 25 that I wanted to get out of the very small town in the Midwest where I was born and raised in order to find my greener pastures, which at that time meant finding a husband, getting married and having kids. What I wouldn’t tell 25 year old me if given the chance!
Fifteen years later I am a single Mom of three beautiful, kind and loving boys ages 11, 9 and 7 with whom I spent 10 years at home, loving and hating every single moment. Being a woman is tough. Being a Mom, tougher. Being a single Mom 1,100 miles from everyone and everything that you love, toughest!
I am strong, independent, confident, trusting. loving and passionate. I have a happy fulfilling life, yet I have spent the past 9 years longing for the chance to move back home. My greatest hope is that one day the universe will see fit to find a way to get me back to my small town in the Midwest in order that my address will once again match my heart.
Until that time I just keep skipping, or maybe more accurately, tripping along through life because giving up is not on my radar!
