I was listening to Luckie Daniels of OurGeorgiaRoots have a discussion with her daughter and it so reminded me of my Mom and myself.
At that moment it reminded me of something that happened when I was about 5 or 6 years old and I would love to share.
I remember getting in the back seat of my Mom’s car or one of her friend’s car. The seat had to be let down and pulled up for me to get in the back. As I was climbing in the back there were a pack of mints called “Velamints” on the floor. Of course me as a kid was thinking “Candy” and reached down for them. My mom yelled at me “NO” that is Medicine and you don’t eat that.
I’m laughing now because I was well into my twenties when I realized that they were just mints. I took what my mom said to me to be true and carried it with me until I realized the truth.
We as children look to our parents and what they say to us a being Gospel so I know that I’m not the only one that this has happened to.
