This was a very good essay. Could try submitting to one of the many Ogden publications like Grit or Capper's. Paragraph 3 was a good transition point between childhood and adulthood. with the sentence "Thinking about the past reminds me how much things change in just a few years."
Your concluding paragraph had wonderful points. Being content compared to having deep-seated joy compared to having fun. Good meditation points. Bless you.

I may not have enjoyed this story 20, 30 or 40 years ago; but now, in the winter of my life...I can relate to the memories of youth, as you so brilliantly did in depicting those days of joy, un-incumbered with worries, and the Scripture verse was precisely On Track. Thanks for sharing.
