Sunday morning reminiscing

I was so thrilled last night when my mother sent me a text letting me know that she was uploading some pictures for me on Facebook. Unfortunately, I deactivated my Facebook account last week so I told her to send them to my daughter instead. I had no idea what they were and I was so excited to see them. Much to my surprise they were very old pictures of me and my sister Pam. She had ran across them while going through boxes of pictures at my Aunt June's house. Ever since seeing them I have been stuck in old memories. I pray that the Lord never takes away all of the precious memories of my childhood. I love to sit down with my eyes closed and concentrate on memories of the past and let those scenes play upon the movie screen of my mind. It's kind of like Christopher Reeve in the movie, Somewhere In Time. I feel like if I try hard enough that I will actually be transported back into those days.

The above picture is of me and Pam standing in Aunt June's front yard. I can barely see the roof of my Aunt Mary and Uncle Stanley's single wide trailer in the background. I don't know the date this picture was taken but I would guess that I was around 1970-71 which would make me 5-years old and Pam 8 or 9. My, how happy we look. We had probably been playing all day in Granny's backyard and June's front yard, both properties adjoined. I would sometimes bring my little plastic toy motorcycle and ride it up and down the long driveway that ran the length of both properties. There was usually a large mud puddle in the middle of the driveway and of course I would have to go right through the middle of it. I'm holding a toy rifle; probably one that shot those little yellow rubber BB's. Looks like my white t-shirt is dirty, most likely from laying on the ground shooting at the "enemy." Pam looks pretty clean. No doubt she was playing a little more sophisticated.

Well, it's Sunday morning I need to be studying for today's Sunday School lesson that I'm teaching. The next time I post, it will be about the other picture mom sent. Meanwhile, enjoy life while you can, it sure does fly by fast
