SYW: 2023 May

This is my entry for Di at Pensitivity101 hosts Share Your World and here is my response for the week.

  1. Growing up, were you closer to your mother or father, or was it a balance of both depending on the circumstances? Growing up I was always closer to my dad. It was never a balance and when he passed away in 1996 apart of me was lost. What little there was between my mom and I became nonexistent sad to say.
  2. What was your favourite toy as a child, and do you still have it? I’m not sure that I had a favourite toy growing up, however, I do have a red and white stuffed monkey with a banana in one hand that I have had since I was about five years of age.
  3. Did you have any secrets? I don’t really have any secrets, but that doesn’t mean that I tell anybody and everyone about my life history. My life story is mine to tell when and if I choose.
  4. What did you want to be when you grew up, and are you anywhere close? I’m not sure if I remember what I wanted to be when I was in grade school. It might have been a teacher since I played school occasionally. The closest I came to being a teacher was being a substitute teacher for many years. In high school I thought I wanted to be a nurse and took a nurses aide class my senior year. In college I never did very well with the science classes especially anatomy and physiology. The closest I ever came to being a nurse was working as a nurses aide for a couple of years. After I got married, I became a teacher, nurse maid and many other things to my family. My oldest son has/had dyslexia and the school didn’t think it was something they Neto work with; therefore I taught him at home until he went to middle school. In my perspective, a mother (or parent) performs many diversified roles throughout their child/children’s life’s.
It’s not happiness that
brings us gratitude.

  1. Lovely Share Your World and gratitude. I am sorry for the loss of your father. I lost mine in 1996 also. He was 67, the same age I am now. I was not as close to my Mum as many daughters are (distance and my sister played a part in that), but I loved her dearly and made sure she knew that when we were together.

    1. We seem to share similarities. My dad was 67 when he passed on & I just turned 67 on the 19th. I always thought my mom favored my brother & (to me) it seemed she thought he could do no wrong & I could do nothing right.


  2. I love the gratitude quote 🌸.
