I Remember When [Story 2]

In the mid-west we experienced all the seasons, and cold winter evenings provided a great opportunity to build a bonfire. We would each get a potato and throw it in the fire. Oh, Yum! Blackened skin and all we would roll the potatoes out of the fire with a stick and let the hot meat melt in our mouths. It was so good!

Summer nights provided more fun times. We got our glass jars from home and jumping and laughing we caught fireflies! Tiny blinking lights in the darkness would draw us all over the yard. Do you have lightening bugs where you live?

Another great summer night's diversion came when a neighbor, who worked for a film company, brought home a movie. On warm summer nights we would all get ready for bed then take blankets and chairs and set them up in his driveway and watch the film. What a treat! One I remember was "Abbot and Costella meet Frankenstein". Great fun!!

It was years before I truly realized God created me with a purpose. Being oldest girl child gave me an inner authority of sorts. Having an older brother taught me what a man-child is like. My observation showed how he got attention for boy things. So, I became a tomboy. God gifted me with talents for sports which created a fun filled childhood full of many athletic activities.

The strength and confidence I learned from these experiences directed me into a life without a lot of fears. God watched over me, groomed me, and skillfully led me down His path. Do not be misled, He did not always have my full cooperation.

I grew up with one older brother and 2 younger sisters. It developed an independence in that my younger sisters shared a special closeness; my brother being a boy had his life, and I chose to be me. I loved sports and had a talent which opened the door to join the neighborhood boys in a variety of sports and games. I was a tomboy and loved it.

I recall the day I was quite young and was allowed to play street baseball; someone hit a high pop-up fly which was going to come down in the driveway as a foul. Team mates yelled to let it go, but my eyes were focused on that ball. Even without a mitt, and much to their amazement, I caught the ball. God gave me a special eye-object relationship that allowed me proficiency in sports. For many enjoyable years sports gave me the positive reinforcement required for a good self image.
