Where else in the world can you leave home at daybreak
and play all day and come back home at dark-30?
Where else in the world can you play 75 innings in a
baseball game and still have energy to play
Where else in the world would your playmates be your
first cousins, your second cousins, your third cousins?
Where else in the world could you make earrings
out of fireflies?
Where else in the world has the best water that comes
not from a bottle but the water hose?
Where else in the world did you learn not to be the first
one to drink from the water hose?
Where else in the world could you not wait until
vacation Bible school cookies and Kool-Aid?
Where else in the world would you have grandparents
named Big Momma and Big Daddy?
Where else in the world would you learn the way of life
God, family and work?
Where else in the world would you have such precious
They say Mississippi is like nowhere else in the world
and I agree.
Thank you, Lord, for allowing me to live
nowhere else in this world.

I am 87 years old. I was born on Jan. 11, 1930, in Grapeland, Miss., between Benoit and Greenville. There is a spot where the one store was. But this is home. I love it.
