It's Like Coming Home.
I just found out that I will have to make a Day Trip on Monday back over to my Home State of Mississippi for personal reasons. As much as I was (and still am) so glad to finally move from there. I somehow always secretly rejoice on coming back. Mostly to visit and see those loving and familiar faces that I rarely ever get to entertain. Then the other part of negative dread is the drive over, filled of nothing but miles of road and pine trees. I always cringe and rejoice when this sign welcomes me back:
It is like a mile marker of "I'm almost there, yay!" to the cringe point of "oh yay, I'm back." I always have mixed feelings about coming back to the Home State. I love qualities about it and detest qualities about it. The latter part being now that I'm living in a new state that has so wonderfully spoiled me. But I always do quietly enjoy visiting old Mayberry. It never ceases to welcome me back home, pick right up where I left off with gossip and the life, its almost as if I had never left.
And the hospitality is always oh so nice! Not that Floridians aren't hospitable. But there is a difference in Mississippi Hospitality and Floridian Hospitality. After all, MS is the Hospitality State! Anyway, this time I really do look forward to coming back for a quick visit, take care of business, and see friends I dearly miss. So Look out Mayberry! Here I come!
Hey There Boys! I'll see you on Monday!
