I was born and raised in a very small town, southwest of San Antonio, Texas ~ Uvalde. Uvalde is the hometown of Matthew McConaughey and a few other celebrities. I eventually moved away in 1998 further south to an unknown area where my hubby accepted a job at a new hospital. It's been a rough transition all of these years. I miss my family so very much as it is quite a ways from my hometown.

Sigh....

Hi ValleyGal, .

I am touched by your expressed sentiments! I've been a stranger in a few far away places from my original roots and can empathize with your feelings.


This song may help to relieve or at least acknowledge the emotions we feel at times when we become overwhelmed, missing our families so far away (click on the blue). Replace West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River with your town of Uvalde. San Antonio, Texas !

Enjoy!!:xxx: Serena x

John Denver ♥ Take Me Home, Country Roads (The Ultimate Collection) with Lyrics

"Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, growing like a breeze
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads........"
"money buys everything,
but ............common sense."

Hello Valley Gal,
[/Do you get to go back home to SAN Antonio Texas to visit your family?b]
No home is complete without the pitter patter of kitty feet.

What a sweet response.... ah home towns.... I'm always drawn back to mine..... and have finally ended up living in a lovely area.... near one of my sisters, my niece and my nephew.

Hard when the hearts yearn for closeness to those who know and love us best.

With the Corona virus it is even more difficult to travel. Who knows when things will get back to normal. On the other hand, we may eventually move away after my husband retires in July. We aren't sure where we'll move to as he dislikes my hometown. There are plenty of other towns nearby that could be a possibility. We will see. I have missed out on so much, i.e. growing nieces and nephews, etc.
