As I was walking my littel girl to Bond Mill Elementary school in Laurel Md this morning, I waived to a woman on the other side of the street. This woman’s name is ‘Kim’. We exchanged waves and a smile. I had recently met Kim at Bond Mill Elementary event. Both our children were in the drama departments most recent production.
As I waved to Kim, it made me think about all the people I have met since I moved to Laurel Md from Gaithersburg Md about 15 years ago. I grew up in Montgomery County Md. Those of us in Montgomery County had a bad impression of Laurel Md. However, since moving to Laurel I realized those bad impressions were wrong.
In the last 15 years Laurel has grown on me. Laurel Md is a great place to live. I feel like I am a member of this town. I know many of the people in my neighborhood. Its nice to wave to familier faces. All of these nice people know my daughter and I know their children.
My little town, Laurel Md, really feels like home.
