We are not saying times were not rough. Nor are we saying it was all good. We are saying look how far we have come with the rules, restrictions and provisions we had. We made a little go a long way. Families of five, eight and ten was the norm. We used those strict rules of staying inside the sound of my voice or in eye shot of guardians and no further than one block or max two in any director work for us in years long gone.
What we gained was tools of socialization with peers. We learned to be adventurous and respect the eyes of neighbors and elders. We learned to thrive knowing we were watched or expected. Our most cunning tricks to skirt the rules did not go long unknown.
When you are going through and your parents made feeding there children and every bodies else's children seem like we were all rich when honestly they "made do" and stretched what they had. The end result was childhood. A childhood. Not every child can say that because some were parents or guardians long before their time.
3Lu's wish is that you embrace the present and learn from the joys and trails of the past. There is no better time than the present to witness change and dirt hills evolving. You are not done yet. Seen any dirt hills lately?
