Homesick

I miss home so much. I want to be in Mississippi. I want to be among what's familiar even if what's familiar really isn't right now.

She's hurting and so am I. I want to be there so we can comfort and take care of one another.

I'm sorry that you can't be in Mississippi right now but I'm glad you're not. I wish I could make you feel better.

Have you been able to contact everyone that you need to? I know phone calls can be expensive country to country. If you need a "middleman" (woman) email me.

I know that feeling - I felt a similar thing after the London bombings. Connect as best you can with your friends and family there.

And keep knitting. It's calming to the soul.

Romani, that's sweet of you but it's super cheap for me to call back home. I pay 2 cents a minute to call the US. Thank goodness for that because I can talk for hours.

Thanks for the comforting words, y'all. I get by with calling home, urging all I know to donate to the relief effort and by knitting.

I wish I could take you there, Dix. I would, sister.

I would give my eye teeth to be in Corinth, Mississippi right now surrounded by the Peach and the Pilgrims.
