The Challenge for today is - What do you miss? a person, a thing, a place, a time of your life...
i took sometime to really think about this. there are quite a few things that i could choose from. i've chosen to go with a time of my life that i miss. i was scrolling through the hundreds of pictures on my laptop and i came across a photo of myself and a friend from childhood. i just happen to still live down the street from this childhood friend and am very close to his mother.
way back in the day when we were six to eleven, we lived next door to each other. there was a big empty lot between our houses that we would play on for hours and hours. we were great childhood buddies. as i looked at a more recent photo of us and several recent photos of myself and another friend from childhood, i thought back to that time in our lives. it was bittersweet to think about. i'm very happy to be where i am in life, but i absolutely miss those times. the innocence of childhood is precious. i miss spending hours outside and never running out of games to play. it's was such a sweet time.
i am very blessed to still be friends, as young adults, with these childhood mates. i wouldn't trade all of the memories we've made for anything!
so here's to the good ole days of playing in the summer heat, having water balloon fights, watching movies, and laughing till we cried.
love you guys!
