My Life - Childhood and innocence 2
Then we moved, my parents applied for a loan and we have our new house. I became sick then, they took me to a doctor, but I did not remember the findings, what I remembered was when they took me to an albularyo or a quack doctor, I think we left the house early in the morning and its still dark outside. So I became well, whether its from the doctor or from the quack doctor, I dont know. Our maid was not with us when we moved, she left I dont know what was the reason, but I heard rumors that my mom and our maid had some mis-understanding. During our stay in our new house, I can described my family as a happy, full of life and a very ideal one. My mom would cook our food during her dayoff, my dad would create a kite and we will fly that to the sunny skies, yeah I remember those days, and my dad would fix something in the house, fix the fences. After a year or two suddenly, something happened, something was wrong, my mom was not in the house often, and my dad had some problems, I saw in his face, I saw him sitting in the sofa looking far away as it seems something was bothering him. In a few days we moved again this time in my grandmothers house. Once again I saw my parents being together, at that time I did not know what was happening. It was not after 15 years the reason was revealed to me, that the reason we moved was because my mom got an affair to a certain person. Who that person was? still a mystery to me until to this day, but I'm not interested anymore to investigate who was he? In my grandmothers house my brother was born, the year was 1975. I spent my childhood there with memorable memories, my grandfather carries me to his shoulder, and he will make a toy and give it to me, toys like parachute, mini tv made from matches and many more. It was not until 1979 when we move again to another house, this time to my another grandmother, aunt of my father, its a two storey house. We lived in the first floor and my grandmother and grandfather lives at the second floor, they dont have children because one of them had some problem. But they have an adopted son, who already has its own family, with children who are already grown up. So I have my first school at Calvary temple under kindergarten, and after that I enrolled at an adventist school for grade 1. I wish those days have not ended, I dont need to worry anything, I dont need to worry about my food, my future, cares of this life, as long I saw my parents being together, everything was ok.
Every moment of a child is very precious, But everything is subject to change, everyone whether we like it or not we will grow, we will change, we will evolve to a higher responsibility. The question is are we prepared? Are we equipt to face the challenges of life. That's why being a parent we need to equipt our kids by teaching them good moral standards, showing them more love so that they will have self confidence. Guiding them to the right path, and the most important of all, being a good example to them, if we live a godly life then these children will follow us.
