The Greenbrier River

Oh we wake up in the mornin' where the Greenbrier River flows
And the sun comes peepin' into where I'm sleeping and the songbirds say hello
I want to paddle up the river, just 100 miles or so and come drifting back to Ann Bailey
It's the finest camp I know.
 

Going to West Virginia is always bittersweet.  It's where I spent summer vacations as a kid, visiting my mom's home town and family.  It's where I fell in love with antique stores, sledding at Christmas, and big, green mountains.  But in the years since my mom died, it's hard to go back.  I love showing my kids where she was from, the house she grew up in and the town she lived in.  And I sing her summer camp song every time we cross the river.  But it's hard to be there without her, without her stories and memories. But it's good to put my feet in the river, it's just that my heart can't take it but every so often.
