Come for a walk with me down Memory Lane!
And if you have a "Memory Lane" post, head on over to Scottsville to join in on the fun!
Here's a trip down memory lane I'd like to forget. Certain church ladies always reminded me that all I ever did was cry. Well here are two pictures that show I cried at least twice.
Truly, I know that I cried about having my feelings hurt or being left in the church nursery. Maybe I even cried when older women with scary faces approached me at church or elsewhere. Heck, I don't know, I was a kid.
I do remember being afraid of some of my older female teachers until about fourth grade. I have no idea why. Maybe it was the old lady at church that told me "all I ever did was cry." There's no way to know what a kid like me was thinking.
A lot of people called me a cry baby which only served to make it worse. At my first wedding the old lady who said what she said, decided that this was the day she had to remind me one more time. Not, "Best Wishes," or "I'm so happy for you," but "I remember you always used to cry."
That day I was all smiles and I just laughed and smiled. Can't remember what I thought, but I'm sure it was along the lines of, "I cried cuz you're so ugly." Please forgive me, I was an unsaved 22 year old bride and that's my excuse. And I'm sticking with it.
I still cry over all kinds of things, but most of the time I try to be really tough.
I think someone pinched me and I know that little boy just took my toy. These are good reasons to cry. Why is it that out of the very few pictures of me as a baby, there have to be ones of me crying?
That's my trip down memory lane and I'm laughing about it now, but I sure wasn't then. Hope you laughed and didn't cry, cuz if you cried I'd say, "You're a cry baby."
