"When I was just a little girl, I said to my Mother, what will I be? Will I be famous, will I be rich? Here's what she said to me. Que, sera,sera whatever will be will be. The future's not ours to see. Que, sera, sera."
My Mother used to sing this little song to me. Another favorite of mine was the song..."How much is that doggie in the window?" And my dear Grandma used to sing this for me..."I'll be with you in apple blossom time, I'll be with you to change your name to mine....". I'm so glad to be all grown up now. Childhood seemed to last for eternity. I always felt that I began to really live when I got married and then, when I was born again by accepting Jesus, well, life took on a richness you must experience to understand. Back to the memories I have of being this tender age...grin. My sister and I laying on our stomachs in the living room, with our legs tucked back under the couch, watching the tv program...'Sky King' and 'The Long Ranger'. Oh how exciting!!!! and how quickly they were over. We also had a collie dog and I had a doll that was almost as tall as I was. Isn't it funny how our memories can go so far back in time, bits of life retained for all of our days, some good memories, some of things that were scary. Like going to kindergarten! I notice I had a cute little doggie on my socks in the picture and a ring on too. How about that...=). I must have been a pretty happy camper! I'll bet my Mum sewed my jumper. I remember once standing on a kitchen chair while she pinned up the hem of a dress she was making me that had flocked lambs on it. Oooh, it was pretty!
"Jesus wants me for a sunbeam, To shine for Him each day; In every way try to please Him, at home, at school, at play. A sunbeam, a sunbeam, Jesus wants me for a sunbeam; A sunbeam, a sunbeam, I'll be a sunbeam for Him." from the hymn "I'll be a Sunbeam". Nellie Talbot/Edwin O.Excell
