"Childhood is supposed to be happy, and if you can't remember yours with any happiness, what hope have you later, when life starts handing you fresh grief?"
This Thursday TBT ( Throw Back Thursday) on twitter was all about good vibrations. We wanted to take the time to reflect on adults who were kind to us as children or extend themselves to show us warmth. These small acts of kinds left such an impressionable mark at a time when it is most crucial, during our childhood.
Numerous stories where shared from a variety of individuals, what became evident throughout these stories was how these individuals were impacted by those small gestures. It made us realize how imperative it is to do an act of kindness for someone, but even more importantly, for children.
The participants sharing these stories ranged in ages from 72-25 years. These acts of kindness were done during their childhood and yet they were able to recall the events with such fondness and still smile at the memory as if it was happening in the presences of the discussion.
This is what happens when you impact a childs life in a small way with kindness.... the memory lives within them nourished by time and held scared in their hearts. It is never forgotten even after the innoncence is replaced with the realities of adult hood.
V. McIntosh - Reminisced about Mr.Hunter who drove the Hostess cake truck and would give all the kids hostess cakes whenever he came to the local district to deliver Wonder bread to the local shops.
C.Allen - Reminisced about Mr.Legdgister the local tailor who taught her the benefits of reading and language.
M.Mullings- Reminisced about Mrs. Scott who always gave the kids their own slice of bread pudding after church.
It is imperative for us to understand how momentous our impact is on the lives of the little ones around us. It is not just our own children that we impact or influence, it is any and every child you come in contact with. LEAVE A POSITIVE MARK, YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN YOU ARE MAKING A TREASURED MEMORY!!!!
"The brightest light, the light of Italy, the purest sky of Scandinavia in the month of June is only a half-light when one compares it to the light of childhood. Even the nights were blue."
Much Love & Walk Good!!
Happy Saturday Family!!!!
If you are in the Boston or the Tri-state area then you woke up to a blanket of snow. As much as 34" in some places.
We hope that you have already shovelled your side walks and drive ways and now you are out doors with the kids having the second round of a snowball fight!!!! Hot Chocolate anyone:-))))
The snow has grown on us ( the island girls), there is something about it that makes us happy!!!!
We can assure you its not the digging or the frigid temps that are also a part of the package. We think its how excited the children get to see the white stuff. They eat it, throw it, build with it ,lay, roll,fall and slide on it:-))) The little ones let us yearn for the innocence of youth. Truth be told ... We don't yearn, we just jump right into the fun.....SNOW BALL FIGHT!!!!!
Family, enjoy the wintery wonderland and after you have done all the adult chores....join the little ones on the sled or build them a snow fort!!!!
Much love & Walk good!!!!
