    My Childhood Until Now...

    I have flash backs or memories of being a toddler. I can remember through ages 2 - 19 somewhat. I remember some bad events, good events. I remember accepting Jesus Christ wholeheartedly at the age of 4 and have walked with God since even in doubt and despair. My mother says I...

    My Solace!

    I didn't have much of a happy childhood... BUT, I do remember the fun times (no matter how few they were), and I'd like to keep those memories forever. I remember all of the fantasy stories that I made up, to entertain myself and my sister. I also love to remember of all the...

    Because I Was The Little Sister

    I remember loving my Daddy with the intense love only a devoted daughter can show a father. I didn't understand it when he was drunk and staggering around, or slapping my siblings up one side of the wall and down the other, again liquored up. Linda complained bitterly that I...

    Paranoid Child

    When I was about 7 I was watching TV one afternoon and they had a program about people with Leprosy. It showed a bunch of people in Africa with the disease. They looked like zombies in a horror movie. It looked like their skin was coming off and they had these nasty sores...

    I Was a Brat

    I was the baby . I always got my way with momma and daddy and my sibling hated it. I am not as bratty as I was then. But I still tend to " GET MY WAY" if there is something I want badly enough.

    Up On the Rooftop

    When I was little I loved to climb up on the roof of my house and just hang out up there and just sit there. I don't know why I liked to do that. I also liked to climb high up in the trees in the yard and on top of our treehouse. I liked to be alone up there I guess.

    The Snowbanks.

    I lived in a chilly Canadian climate, when wintertime hit. The roads would be plowed regularly, creating huge mounds of snow on either side of the road. Most of the kids would walk to school, no matter the weather, and we had a particular penchant for walking the snowbanks. The...

    Idiot Child

    When I remember what I was like as a kid I can't believe it. I was extremely guilable. I absolutely believed what everyone said. My family knew this and would take advantage to their great entertainment. Like the time when I was 3 and went to my uncle's house for Thanksgiving. I...

    The Little Dudes.

    I loved school. And I think what I loved most about school were the smells of the classroom, the new books to read, and my friends. But especially the boys. I was attracted to boys the second I stepped into kindergarten. And they knew it, too. I showed just how much, and they...
