My Childhood Memories...❤️

My Childhood Memories...❤️

The old house is still standing full of my childhood memories....tho the trinkets have all disappeared from my family treasuries... it’s been twenty years & more since I walked right through that door where my Mother stood in the kitchen in her homemade pinafore....

Our home was sold & emptied after my old folks passed away.... I can still get tears welling inside of me as if it was just yesterday....yet it was so long ago, it still hurts like hell you know....& I often reminisce about my Parent’s bygone tales that made them glow....

These days I drive past our driveway & I remember my Dad’s car...he would take us out with Mother for a jaunt in it, we never went that far....but it’s the simplest things that make me smile as I recall my early days.... back to those happy times at my hometown coz they learned me life in lots of ways....

Hi Jill...Thanks for sharing your childhood memories...I love to think back of my childhood too with fondness.  It is nice to be able to recollect the good ol' days and where I am today from my upbringing.  It is the simplest things in life that turn out to be the best.  By far!  Thanks for sharing.  xo ;)
