    Hiking down to Slide Creek in the Rocky Mountains of Montana with my dad, carrying my fly rod and creel, then catching my limit of cutthroat trout. We wouldn't get back to the cabin until almost dark, and Mom would have a huckleberry pie cooling on the kitchen table. Sweet memories!

    meeting my wonderful husband at the age of 33 out of. No where. Feeling that feeling of knowing he was the one. Feeling those butterflies and getting and staying excited about our love and family.

    The smell of fall and crisp leaves with fireplaces lingering in the air of my old neighborhood, no street lights. Just freedom.

    Spending time in my backyard with my sister in the sun next to our pool, endless days of laughing. It always felt like we had all the time in the world.

    As a white child I lived in a world that was free from constraints, free from so many of the fears that children of color experienced. I savor those moments and years, yet deeply feel that my 'simple life' was not universal nor 'worry free' for most American children nor the world.

    footprintsangel:

    I like a particular model of shoe that is no longer in production so for the past 10 years, I had been buying them "used" on eBay. They are often actually new in the box or had only been worn once or twice, but when I told my parents I bought my shoes used on eBay, they both recoiled in shock and disgust. They gave me this look like "What kind of daughter have we raised who wears shoes that have been on other people's feet?!" It struck me as funny because it's the only time in my life I have managed to shock and disappoint my parents.

    That was sad, I know parents were so different then, something I

    try and laugh at now is my dad would say, When God passed out

    brains You thought he said caught a train, a lot like Yours, But I

    try to take the good times like when my dad cam home from Viet Nam

    and was safe.
