Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ..♡
I have a childhood friend. Her name is Cindy. We go way back to when I was in the second grade. I met Cindy when my parents bought a home in La Habra, California.♡
Cindy was a couple of years younger than me. I knew that she Adored me. ♡
Even though she had a sister. Her sister was much older than her.. and already married. So in some ways Cindy was raised as a only child. (Translated to….. Cindy was spoiled)
Okay dear friend, this is where I have to confess something embarressing. I was AlWaYs a little jealous of her. Yikes! Did I really say that!
Well. .. Yes, I did, and it was true. Let me share WhY….even though I was the “baby” girl, and pampered in a zillion ways..okay, a zillion and OnE ways… My parents were raising 5 (Yes 5!) Children. I was jealous of my adoring friend, because she was SmArT, BeAuTiFuL, TaLeNtED, and it appeared to me, she got whatever she wanted. Her parents could afford it. .. and the reality was mine couldn’t. ♡(pouty face ONE)
Cindy had the perfect dream bedroom. .all to herself. ♡
I always had to share one with my “older” sisters. (Pouty face TWO)
It was like a fairy tale, whenever we played dress up. We would use her mother’s “old” throws aways. ..
Which were actually quite nice, and fashionable. Well, time for another confession. … sometimes I would try to take advantage of Cindy. I know this is going to be shocking… But I’d tell her that if she didn’t let me use her “favorite” doll for playing dress-up… Then I just wouldn’t play with her. She would throw a temper tantrum. ( That’s what WE spoiled kids do) (smile) and guess who would win. ….
Two VeRy spoiled little girls won. Because at that moment, we learned about friendship, and sharing. I guess after both of our tantrums we forgave one another. Many years later I was to be Cindy’s Matron of Honor in her wedding.♡
I’m wondering if you have a ThRoWbAcK ThUrSdAy story…. I’m thinking you just might. I’m betting it’s a sweet one too…♡(grin)
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed your visit. Have a lovely day my
