The Blogging Meetup Weekly Wednesday Prompt 5/25/2016
Imagine you were someones shadow for a day, what would you see?
This post is a little different to the prompt question, for The Blogging Meetup Weekly Prompt.
I have gone back sixty-five years of my life and I’m living in the shadows of my life as a child.
Those were the days when I was happy, not a care in the world, living as an innocent child, playing amongst the trees, climbing up the branches, sitting in the grass making daisy chains with my sisters, (I had three), to see who could make the longest chain.
Catching grubs that were down holes in the soil with a piece of grass stuck down their hole, the grub would start eating the stalk on the grass, and we would pull out the grub, my sisters and I would see who could pull out the most grubs.
We never had toys like the children of today we made our own games, the days would go by quickly running around the farm, watching rabbits go into their burrows as we came across them in the long grass.
You could most likely say that we were poor, but my parents in those early years usually gave us something nice to eat for a special occasion, like birthdays and Christmas we would have home-made ice-cream, but no toys we got clothes like a new dress or shoes something that was essential to our everyday needs.
The picture above caught my eye when looking for a photo, I would have loved a pretty dress like that, but I never got one like that, I was thankful for any dress which my mother made, she would sit down with her treadle singer machine and make our dresses, she was always making aprons which we would wear over our dresses to keep them clean.
It wasn’t until I was eleven years old that my life went in a new direction and my childhood changed, I had to grow up and almost become an adult overnight.
I will continue writing more in another post, I’m feeling a little tired this morning, didn’t have a very good night’s sleep.
Blessings to all my readers.
