What is your earliest memory?

My earliest memory

I was only two or four years old. Such a happy little boy I was. Riding on the back seat of my fathers bike. He picked a flower and handed it to me to hold onto. I looked it and smelt it. Nature is beautiful. We ride upto a pretty young girl. Hand her the flower Jake, he said. But it was too late, I had already thrown it under the wheel to watch it be destroyed on the ride there. I was not like him, I was the spawn of satan.

What is your earliest memory? Do you feel it shaped your character in some way? All stories welcome 😃

Good morning,

A sad memory. I was about 5 years old, I woke up and called

out for my Mum: " Mama, Mama" but she was not there.

My Mum had gone to heaven.

Yes, this memory has shaped my character in a profound way ... and after a long time of

suffering, I am grateful to say, I have come out at the other end of the tunnel.

My theory is, in life we only get given what we can handle at the one time.

Through my life experiences, I have learnt the skill to live in the NOW and to live one day at a time.

Have a lovely Saturday.

Best wishes
