Childhood Memories

Japanese Honeysuckle

I was out looking at the honeysuckles on my vine still blooming. It took me back to my childhood for a second. We would spend hours picking the wild honeysuckle blooms. The smell was something else. They smelled delicious. I lost my Mom when I was 14, so any memory I have of her is priceless. I would always pick a special bouquet just for her. She had a vase she would always use and put them on the table. This made me feel very special. Do you have good childhood memories? Care to share? Photo ┬ęCarolDM

I just lost my Mom last year. I too feel the same way about treasured memories spent together. When I was growing up, my Mother loved to go to the movies on the weekend. She'd take me along and it would be our time together. Not so recent, is she loved seeing the Moon at night from our little backyard. We saw the Super Moon together another fond memory to hold and treasure forever.

@CarolDM Very difficult indeed. Lost my Dad in '08. But as we know we have our memories. Have you heard of healgrief.org? You can light an internet candle memorial for those who have passed.

A lot after I got older. As a child I was more of a daddies girl. If at all possible I was with him. Even working the hay fields. Until I became a teenager. For a few years I had a very strained relationship with him and thus my mom also. But as I got older I spent more time with my mom. And especially the last few years. Something started telling me to visit as much as possible.

Yes, how we love our moms! I remember her baking bread when I was very young. We had an oven and a fireplace and not much else in the kitchen. She would always make me a little bread in the shape of a man just for me.

@CarolDM Do you have siblings to share your memories? When I am with my sister sometimes we talk about our childhood and it is so nice.

Your descriptive memories were so lovely to read. Your post triggered memories of when I was a child; I enjoyed the honeysuckle that grew on my grandmother's backyard fence every year.

Yes. When I was a child we used to go to the picnic with 3-4 families on sea beaches with our breakfast and lunch. We played,took a bath in BAY OF BENGAL watching the flowers and came back home in the evening.

That is a very sweet memory. I remember picking lilacs in the early spring, in May, and setting up a table in our living room with a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mother on it, a couple of candles and the vase of lilacs. It was a reminder, and the scent of the lilacs drew you over to it. Something I did as a pre-teen, it made my mother and Gramma happy.

That is so young to lose your mother, and I'm so sorry. Any memory of our mothers are always ones to cherish.

I enjoy my memories of playing sports with the kids from my block (back when kids still went out and played). When I teach the younguns I work with to play catch, to kick a soccer ball, etc., it brings up those memories.

My aunt and uncle had a honeysuckle vine at their house. I remember that my cousin's and I would often suck up the nectar from the flowers.

Youth in itself is a good memory.
