“I was Country when Country Wasn’t Cool”

So what were you doing 35 years ago?

I was in the process of filling out scholarships and college applications. Why – Because I wanted to get OUT. I felt my life was meant for something bigger and better. And for a while that seemed to be what I yearned for. 

But in the words of a famous Barbara Mandrell Song”..I was Country When Country Wasn’t Cool.. Even though I didn’t know it, or even want it to be true.

I was raised with a rural, construction lifestyle in a small farming community, and I reside in the same community today.

As a teenager this is the last place I Believed I would settle down. This life is in NO way close to the life I envisioned for myself, decades ago.

Today my rural, work from home, spoil the grandkids type of days are what I yearn for.

Perhaps, Sometimes we need to thank God for Unanswered Prayers.. 

Anyone else feel the same way? I’d love to hear your story.
