A to Z April Challenge: W is for Where...
I was born on a hot August night in the mid-1960s in Anderson County, South Carolina. First born of a second born daddy and a fourth born mama with over three hundred years of family behind us. My daddy and my grandpa were born in the same hospital where I was born, where mine and David's surviving children were born. My mama was the first of her mother's children to be born in a hospital (in another county - Abbeville) due to complications during my grandma's labor.
Anderson County is in the northwest corner of South Carolina where it borders with Georgia. Here are a couple of links to learn more about where I come from:
The hometown newspaper online is how I keep up with the news going on back home: Independent Mail
There are many songs out there about "back home". This is one of my favorite.
This one isn't about where I came from, but about where I belong, which is by David's side for eternity, no matter our geographical location. So, with lots of love, here's to you, David!
Where are you from? How far from "home" are you? Do you wish to go back?
