What is something or someone you miss the most from your childhood?

I miss my summers with my grandmother.  I used to fly to NY every summer and stay with her we would go pick strawberries and have a great time together.  I sure do miss her.

    • That’s what I miss most also. We had the best summers. She would teach me to sew, cook, we would read and write poems together, work in her garden and my favorite watch the Guiding Light!! Every day when it came on she reminded me that she used to listen to it on the radio..

      Ok I’m about to cry nowfrown I miss her.

    • I miss the closeness I had with my cousins, we grew up next door to each other, we were back and forth at each others houses’ but when I married I was all of a sudden excommunicated. We see each other at weddings and funerals  but we don’t have the connection we once did. We barely say hello to each other and move on.

    • My sisters and brothers we were close and did things together. As we married and had children things change, life goes on.
      Summers were fun, baseball in the pasture.  Flag football, Digging potatoes, pulling corn.  Not all fun and games, but we had each other and could ALWAYS count on each other.  

      Today we still can count on each other, but your spouse, children come before your brother or sister, it’s to be expected.  But, to bring back the careful feeling of youth no worries, no bothers, just living life and having fun.

    • I too miss my grandma and grandpa as during summer vacation I would go and stay with them  until it was about time for school to start again. We used to go for walk’s looking for wild mushroom’s and dandelion green’s as she loved to eat them both.She taught me how to play kid’s card games like “war“,“Crazy Eights“, “Kings On The Corner“.

      I wasn’t able to afford to go to Indiana to my grandma’s funeral and both of my parent’s said that I was better off not to go ,that I should remember her as she was .A kind hearted yet feisty little lady not even 5 foot tall and 100 lbs.Get the image of Granny Clampett of the Beverly Hill Billies and THAT is what my grandma looked like and in a way acted like.

      My grandpa was a kind hearted,gentle ,quiet  soul . He used to set at the dining room table and work cross word puzzles or play solitaire.In the summer he wore bib overalls and a sleeveless tee shirt (now called wife beaters)Whenever he went outside he wore a straw hat. When he mowed he used one of the old timey hand pushed lawn mower . The one with the blade but no motor.When he would get ready to walk to town he would kiss grandma and say “I Love You Mommy“. He always called her mommy.

      He was 20 year’s younger then her but she out lived him. He was healthy as a horse but his heart burst.After grandpa passed I liked to go stay with grandma still ,but it was hard because when I sat in the living room I could see the table where grandpa used to set and I could “see” him setting there.

      SORRY TO GET OFF TOPIC BUT THEY BOTH MEANT SO MUCH TO ME frown

    • I miss the camping trips in Fort Erie, Canada (we lived in Buffalo, NY)..we would pile everyone up and there were lots of kids to play with, the big Italian family reunions in Chestnut Ridge State Park, filling up water-balloons with my friends on a hot night and all the neighborhood kids would chase each other for hours, sitting with my girlfriend on her porch listening to my David Cassidy albums...Wow, so many great memories!!estatic

    • I envy all your childhood memories. I don’t have many good ones. My childhood was really SCREWED UP!! Won’t go into detail, but suffice it to say, not very happy.

      My Dad and I were pretty close when he had the time. He would take me to his parents house in the country in TN (they were not my biological family and let me know it!!) in the summer and we would spend a few days, sometimes a week. He would always take a gun or two and we would go out back and he taught me how to shoot. I couldn’t wait each year to go to the country for target practice to get out my young frustrations. frown

    • I miss going out of town with my granparents.. Every summer my grandparents my mom, myself and sister and brothers would loaded up in my grandfathers truck and would leave for the whole summer visiting relatives in Mexico, Presidio,Tx, Pecos,Tx.. We would go horse back riding, swimming, fishing.. just being carefree. We always came back home about a few weeks before school started.. We did that every year till I was about 12 yrs old..

      My grandparents taught me so much.. And me and my grandfather had a very close relationship, he was always there for me and he spoiled me rotten.. He passed away in 1984, and my grandma in 1999...

      Because of my grandma, I love to knit, because of my grandpa, I love to do puzzles (we always did puzzles together)

      I miss them both so much!!!

    • Yes, I would spend summers with my grandmothers in WV.  I learned to sew and quilt.  I learned to make jelly and to can.  

      Once during a bad thunderstorm my grandma and I stayed awake all night talking.  Those are memories I’m glad that weren’t lost to chemo!  I miss both of them very much.

      Gilda Marie, I love to knit, too!  I taught myself.  I’m looking for patterns for chemo hats to donate to the cancer center I go to.

    • My Grandparents used to own a package store, motel and dairy bar and we lived close by. I always helped my Grandmother out in the Summer cleaning the rooms and helping in any way I could. I enjoyed spending the time with her. I sure do miss those days and my Grandmother.happy

    • I miss walking on walls, riding my bicycle around, and hanging out with my little brother.  It seemed like such a safer and simpler time back then.

    • I  miss riding our bikes, baseball games, camping out.
      I grew up in a small town and there were about 20 kids my age to play with. The worst part is now we never see each other and when we do it’s a quick “HI” and go on about our buisness.
      WOW I miss the good old days!!!

    • I miss my summers in my home, my mom would come over and she would go out back and lay in my hammock and enjoy the natural sounds of nature and the water trickling from my pond, I would either be in the breezeway working on a project of grilling us something to eat. I miss those special moments with her RIP mom.

    • I was sitting here trying to remember something and to be honest was having a real hard time....but then I remembered when I was young my father (adopted father) use to take me hunting and fishing with him...my little brother was too small so he would take me with him...we’d pack up the boat and take off...camping here and there along the river...these trips were probably one of the few happiest times in my childhood...
      I must add...that I really enjoyed reading your shared stories...kind of made me envious as I never really had that much of a family closeness background....you are all so truly blessed.
