Can you be homesick for somewhere you’ve never lived?

Maybe I’m not homesick for somewhere else, I just desperately miss my sister. Just like any friends, we go thru spurts of talking to each other all the time and then not so much when we are both busy. But after a week of phone calls, lots of texts, playing Words with Friends & a picture blog her friend posted, I just really miss her.

I’m sure I sound like a broken record… but I’m also missing her simple farm life. I have so many thoughts swirling in my head. The homebody I could be. Just taking care of my family, home & cooking. Is the grass just greener?  Would I quickly tire of staying home all day? Would I be sad that the nearest Starbucks would be well over 30 minutes away? Not to mention that a shopping trip at Nordstrom would be an all day affair due to it being over an hour away… I couldn’t just pick up pizza for dinner because I didn’t feel like cooking…

Well, for now I will try to be content to live here in our beautiful old towne. So many blessings I have to count. So many things I do love about Orange & “city” life.

…I’ll look forward to that someday I might have my own farm, cow to milk and endless bread making to keep up with.

Until then, I miss you sister.

  1. It's too bad you can't have the best of both worlds…city life and country. More recently I've longed to live in the country. I don't think I could actually do it but I like the idea of a slower pace and having the southern hospitality that So Cal lacks. Now, if I could move my entire family….maybe I could do it! I'm sorry you're missing your sister. I couldn't imgaine how difficult it is to have her so far away…

  2. I wish I could have both too! And move my parents & the rest of the family with us. The older I get the more the simplicity of a slower life is much more apealing. Especially with a growing family! No need to feel preasured to go out and do everything either!
