I miss my country home the most in the fall and winter months.
It was hotter than the devil’s domain in the summer so I don’t miss it quite as much then 🙂
I also do NOT miss traffic being stopped by farm equipment 🙂
There were so many charming little businesses, farms and beautiful houses to look at while driving…fall displays…fall carnivals/festivals…everything shut down for snow…kind and personable people…the gas station slash market down the road and it’s tasty treats [chicken on a stick and BBQ bologna…just two examples]…I’m grateful for where God has me…but I do miss it.
It was laid back and down to earth…good manners…kind neighbors and strangers for the most part [every town has freaks]…for the most part a Christian little town…the locals called it God’s Country…because He spared them in most natural disasters.
Every place has it’s charm…things I like here:
- closeness of kin
- my gym & trainers
- certain school faculty/staff
- new good friends & associates
- pretty fall foliage
- charities to participate in
No one gets it all. It’s best to be grateful for the good of the past and the good of the present…no matter how different.
