Cherished Memories

What is your earliest memory of Mom or Dad helping you master some activity? (Serendipity Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, page 1254).

The memories are two. I remember the tenderness of being taught how to tie my shoes at one time or other by either mama or daddy. The other was when I was in a lower grade in elementary school and was learning how to spell words. I had to come up with my own ideas as to what I wanted to spell. With mom and dad’s help, we came up with “bicycle” and “banana”. Mama and daddy gave me the correct spelling and helped me learn them. I can distinctly remember rehearsing the spelling at the morning breakfast table before going to school. My older brother, Bobby, was duly impressed. The cameo of my family gathered in loving affirmation is still a very powerful asset more than 60 years later.
