Okay I have decided to post some short stories about my childhood and I know they won't be the same as they are when me and my siblings are together and we are saying "remember the time".....and we share stories and laugh so hard about them.
Our parents divorced when I was six years old and we moved into a two room house with my grandparents whom I called Grandma and Grandpa. They were virtually strangers to me so it was a very strange and stressful transition for me, however, my Grandma would soon become the most important person in my life.
Up until then my Mama,Daddy and brothers and sisters were my life and I had lost my Daddy and exchanged him for grandparents and a new town ( more about this later) and house that were strangers to me. First,.. I was a "daddy's girl" I followed him everywhere he went if I could, I was like his shadow. So I really wasn't interested in this change.
Where the laughter title comes in is there are lots of reasons for us kids to be bitter and mean as some people are and blame it on their childhood but we chose to have fun and laugh about it all so we do still to this day. Proverbs 17:22 says. "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: and a broken spirit drieth the bones." So I'm glad that we can laugh about our calamities, maybe thats our only sanity...........lol
This is the way I see it! and introduction of characters.
Big Chief, little Chief and Dagwood.
The grasshopper and the chickens and the potato bug zoo.
Bike ride over Diana's head,knife in the snow, ice skating, brother tied to a chair, catalpa tree, and softball team.....etc. and hopefully much more.
