I had an uplifting conversation with a local woman yesterday. We took turns talking about all the advantages of living in Moose Jaw. She gets it. It made me happy.
You see, I have friends and acquaintances who live all around the country and all around the world. There are times that I envy them and their lifestyles and there are times when they question why I've chosen to stay in Moose Jaw.
Well, there are a number of reasons why I like it here. Life is simple in The Friendly City. We have wonderful outdoor spaces to enjoy and fabulous facilities for our leisure time and the entertainment options have never been better.
Now, back to the conversation. I pointed out to the local woman that I had made an appointment to do business with her on Wednesday. I got in to see her on Thursday. We got it done. I also booked some professionals to perform a home maintenance job on Wednesday. They got it done about 24 hours later. That just doesn't happen in the big city.
These are some of the reasons why she lives here, why I live here - why WE live here.
