As we celebrate Children’s Day today, we are reminded of the times when we would build castles in the sand. Those times we spent with Baba Dudu and Sisi Pelebe, Pako, Digestive and Coconut biscuits…
Reminded of times where we were not weighed down by the weight of responsibility. Times we could run out and play in the rain. Times we dreamt of growing older fast so we would be “big boys and girls.”
The golden age. We had no worries. We had no problems. Food was always available as at when due. We had shows like Cadbury breakfast to look forward to on Saturday mornings. Care Bear was one of the top cartoons around. We may not have had it all, but we had enough. Childhood memories are nostalgic. And they leave a smile on your face when you think about them.
Now, we have grown, and if we had known, we wouldn’t have grown up so fast. Now, we face the hustle and bustle of the city everyday. These days, we move about to earn a living. There are now a ton of responsibilities to handle. Bills to pay. And there’s always traffic. lol
But today, you can capture the feeling of being a child once more, because it’s Children’s Day, and if you can remember all these things, then you’ve come a long way! Childhood is golden. Cherish it. And teach your kids also to cherish it. Subsequently, it’s all gone before you know it.
Now, we can no longer do a lot of these things, but, we can take a moment today to appreciate the beauty of childhood, and the fact that 20 years on from now, we would miss these times too. But till then…
