Looking Back In Time

Lifes Journey

Many days I have sat around thinking about my childhood and all that I have overcame and learned throughout my life. I decided to dedicate a hub to my childhood memorys that I would never want to forget.

Childhood

  • When I was five years old at a Easter egg hunt I will never forget when we was opening up all the plastic ones to see if there was that little piece of paper inside to give you a number that would let you win a prize. My heart was racing as I grabbed a red egg and cracked it open and there it was before my eyes a little piece of paper with the number 5 on it. I jumped up and down yelling mommy mommy I won something. When we went over to the table to see what I won boy was I in for a surprise. I had one the biggest prize! I won an actual bike. From that day till today my favorite number is still 5.
  • When I was eight years old I loved doodling still do till this day. So when channel 8 (Kait8) news posted that was having a drawing contest and if your picture was chosen you would get to go on live TV and actually forecast the weather I HAD to enter the contest. So I sat down that night and drew up a weather picture. I sent it in and every morning when I got up before school I would sit and watch to see if my picture would get chosen. One day after waiting our bus ran early and I had to leave before I got the chance to watch the weather. While I was at school my English teacher came up with a big smile on her face to tell me that my mother was waiting in the front office for me. I thought I was in serious trouble. I walked into the office and my mom just smiled and said "Natosha you won sweetie! Your picture was picked." So, I got to go to Jonesboro, AR and be on live TV! I still have it recorded on VHS.
  • My first kiss. Yes, it must be a woman thing but I still treasure my first kiss who happened to be with my husband today. I was eleven and we was holding hands walking down the road just enjoying the day when we stopped by a gate to a cow field. In my childhood this gate was referred to by all my friends the talking gate it was where my parents would allow us to go and get away from the house. We walked down to the gate and was talking about something ridiculous if I had to guess and out of the blue he leaned in and kissed me then said "I have been waiting to do that to you since I first laid eyes on you." I believe it was from that moment that I made up my mind I was going to marry him.

At age 5 you won a bike with the #5? I do believe that would still be my favorite number, too! Especially since I never got a bike ever (as a kid--did as an adult), even with my own money. Folks wouldn't let me. No safe place to ride it where we lived.

Horse, yes. Bike, no.

And...on Channel 8 at age 8? Wow.

My parents were married and my first wife was born, all on 9-11 (though different years, of course), but that doesn't seem quite the same....

Whoa. What a first kiss story. Mine's not near that cool. (It's not ALWAYS a woman thing.) I was in the first grade, and a classmate (name withheld for my safety--tough girl!) grabbed me when I got off the school bus in the morning and laid one on me.

See? There were aggressive women around then, too, no matter what they try to tell you! LOL! (That would have been in 1949.)

Now, my SECOND kiss, age 9, under the bushes with dark-haired Faye...quite another matter.

Voted up and across. (The "funny" is for the apprehension on the way to the front office.)
