“My dearest son, it’s almost June
I hope this letter catches up with you and finds you well
It’s been dry but they’re callin’ for rain
And everything’s the same ol’ same in Johnsonville
Your stubborn ol’ daddy ain’t said too much
But I’m sure you know he sends his love
And she goes on, in a letter from home”
Obviously, modern technology makes communication with home pretty simple. I can Facebook message, IMessage, Skype, and email! However nothing says, “I am thinking about you” quite like an encouraging letter or card from America. I am definitely no soldier like in John Michael Montgomery’s ‘Letters From Home’, but I have always appreciated receiving mail and this was the only song I could think of that represented how I feel accurately.
I will catch up my readers about my activities as soon as possible. There is a lot to do this week because time is running out quickly! Stay tuned!
