So you won’t feel bad cuz you missed it! How sensible is that?
You save your money. You buy your ticket or you pay for gas and cabin/hotel room or a new camper/old camper/tent. You find your best clothes to make you feel most comfortable when you arrive in town. You make phone calls to find out has already decided to come. You build up to the moment!
Most of you are home now. You’ve made it! You are delighting in the good weather and the great company. My sister Betty is there as I write. She’s been visiting since her arrival and people are singing out to invite her to visit. Nice that people are so neighbourly. Soon I will be there and I know there will be people I won’t recognize so bear with me. I love meeting people and discovering their stories.
So, yes, you don’t want to miss all the fun and the chats upon the ball field, the music to listen and dance to, the introductions, the catching up! It is going to be overwhelming at times, and you won’t remember what you said, but you will realize that you are where you should be right now. You, being yourself, the authentic wonderful individual that you are, are in your glee!
Yes, I know there are people who can’t afford to come home, or they are sick or have some other reason why they can’t be home this year. But if you can, you should make the effort.
Be seein’ you soon!
