Very lovely and reminiscent. I wouldn't change a thing except the "&" in your title. Nice piece of writing!
Nice entry..I enjoyed reading it. Leaves us with a very good question at the end.
God bless ya, littlelight
Very nice job, good memory essay. Thanks for posting.
You have helped me to remember that our time is short.
Help me Lord, live it for today.
Great article!
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.
