OK, so yesterday I was chatting with Chuck Barrett, voice of the Razorbacks, at a reception. I'm not a star struck kind of gal, but it was interesting actually seeing his face while speaking. He went to school here and was speaking at an Educational Foundation Reception. ANYWAY, I was telling him we were transplants here, but that when we moved here and people found out we were Razorback fans, they told us he was from here. They were proud that he calls Clarksville his hometown.
Then he asked me how long I had lived here...and I had to think. (I moved here when I was pregnant with Lauren, so that makes it 15 years. Hmmmm.)
He responded..."So you know your way around." Yeah, I guess so.
It got me to thinking...
So, I'm from Mountain Home. My parents still live there. We spend every Christmas there. But I haven't lived there in over 20 years. And I've lived here almost 15.
Are you from where you graduated high school? And how long until I say I'm from here? If I moved to another town now, wouldn't I say I was from Clarksville?
And in case you're going to remind me that I'm an alien in this world, I thought of that this morning during Bible Study. (I Peter 2:11)
I suppose literally speaking, I'm from Mountain Home, I live in Clarksville, but my home is in HEAVEN.
