Each day, laptop and children permitting, I’ll share a prompt that’s been on my mind, and a few of my thoughts.
You are welcome to share your own perspective in the comments, or just journal it out!
What do I miss about my childhood?
Thank you friends for all of your thoughtful responses over the last several days!
As I reflect with you, I realize how blessed I am to have a childhood I’m grateful for.
We had our struggles.
But what I remember the most is how close my family stayed through thick and thin.
We spent every minute together. We loved music. We talked about life. We played cards. We went camping and hiking and on family trips.
My parents weren’t perfect, but they loved us. And we loved each other.
I’m grateful to still have lots of those moments today.
Another thing I miss is my childlike propensity to not care one iota about what other people think.
In elementary, we would march around hugging trees and chasing boys. In high school, I would sing at the top of my lungs with my earphones in – on the city bus, next to the cafeteria, to complete strangers… haha!
Sometimes I miss that lack of inhibition.
What do you miss?
