Life As a Child
« on: January 24, 2022, 09:44:13 PM »
When I was a child
life was filled
with laughter and
make believe.

There was joy in
just being alive
I saw everything
through a child's
eyes.

The gardenia bush
covered in sweet
smelling white
flowers that
always got my
attention
when I went out-
side to play....

When I was a child
I was safe and worry free,
happy just being loved
by those who shared my world
with me.

Little did I know then
that I'd be looking back
longingly-to times when
there was so much joy
in my every day.

My dresses were made
from flour sacks and
there were times I didn't
own a pair of shoes...
When I did get store bought
clothes they'd already been
handed down a time or two.

It's not how much we have
or if our clothes are fancy
or not...It's the happy memories
we make, while wearing
what we've got.

I'm proud my mama and daddy
instilled in my young heart
things that money can't buy:
love, and a spirit that knows wrong
from right ,and the power of
faith in my life.

Female shapes were again acknowledged and furthermore stressed. The length of skirts and dresses remained for wholesale african clothing almost 10 years on mid-calf, to which we allude today as "Midi".

Utilize this chance to pose the dental specialist any last inquiries you could have and to get a feeling of whether you believe you can unwind with and trust the dental specialist. If at this stage you feel a few second thoughts or then again assuming there are Implants Perth any issues, it's smarter to move onto one of different dental specialists from your rundown and timetable an arrangement there.

The benefit of doing your own site design improvement rather than getting a toronto seo services administration is that there is no forthright expense for getting your site positioned in the web indexes. The weaknesses, obviously, are absence of ability in the field.

I really enjoyed your poem Jan, it was light and accessible. I often find myself wistful and nostalgic, especially now that I'm learning what it means to be an adult. The third stanza really got to me. I did not exactly have a gardenia bush but I do remember coming home to the sight of Jasmin flowers. There's just something about the smell that really welcomed me as a kid. I reckon the tone for this poem is quite accurate, it has me thinking about the past and how unburdened it was. Sigh...I was so lucky as a child. Anyway, hope you post more!
