I feel so blessed to be born in and to live in Florida. Florida is superior to all the other states, especially Texas. We have everything- wonderful beaches and inland areas, large cities like Jacksonville and wide open countryside, palm trees swaying gently in the breeze and forests full of pine trees. Earlier today as I was sitting on my back porch sipping sweet tea and looking at little tweety birds landing in our grapefruit tree illuminated by the beautiful sunshine of a cloudless blue sky, I realized how jealous people in other states must feel. People up north in Georgia and Alabama must feel the most jealous, being so close to Florida, but not quite there. This place truly is God's country. I'm reminded of a joke often heard in North Florida: Q. Why does the St. Johns River flow North? A. Because Georgia sucks!
