I Remember

 

Daily Prompt: Moments to Remember

What are the three most memorable moments — good or bad, happy or sad — in your life? Go!

 

I have to answer this in small stories

“The First Kiss”

My mother wasn’t a very affectionate woman. in my family we just didn’t openly express our affection. There came a day when I was sick (I still don’t know what till this day) and as the visiting hours that day were coming to a close. Before she left she leaned over and kissed me. To some that’s a small thing but for her that was major expression of love, concern and maybe fear.

“The First Look”

I had seen her before many times, but never like this. She was radiant and glowing and walking toward me (of all people). As she walked the crowd stood, the women there sighed and I trembled. I had seen her before but never like this because she would never be what she was before. This was the last time I saw my fiancé and the first time I saw my wife.

“The First Lesson”

My Father’s believed only speaking once, and he never did. There was action of a physical nature that followed in infractions of his law. So one day when I broke the law of bad grades I knew that there would be punishment and I braced myself for it. I had never been so scared in all my life. When he spoke that day, my heart was hanging on to every word wondering when the correction would start. He knew he had a captive audience (literally). At this moment he decided to speak and share with me the words that I live by today. He said ” If the grades that I see are not your absolute best, I don’t want to see them. I want only your best, do you understand?  I did then, and still do.

These are three moments that I keep in my mind and they help shape me into what I’m becoming. I’m always becoming.
