I have my mother's mom. She is really old and still very caring.
I wish she could live in the city with us, but she prefers to stay in village side.
I think I understand her, the city is just not natural and "normal', she's probably (more) comfortable with the countryside
Yes, once she had come here for by brother's marriage. She faced lot of challenges here. The change was too much for her age. We came to know that city life is a very big change for her at this age.

It is true that the best memories i have are from my childhood, back when my father is still alive, back when i'm still living in a hill overseeing farms and beautiful scenery. My father taught me many things about this world that up until now i apply them in my life. Those memories could never be replaced by anything else in the present.

:shifty: My best memories stem from childhood, when I was young and stress-less and worry-less. But life knocked on the door, and...now I've got pictures on the wall. :shifty: :techie-studyingbrown:

I find that for most, the best memories are always found in the childhood period, is this true?

No, I think that the best memories can be made at any time during your life. The freedom and worry-free childhood, or meeting someone to love. Your children being born. Travelling to wonderful places. Reading that exceptional book.

I love the sea and would love to spend time watching it rise and fall; but life in sea, not me. I don't like being near the enormous waves.

I have a lot of great childhood memories with friends, memories of trips, my wedding, the birth of my son, and time spent with him. :)

just the childhood age is not memorable, the adult life is pretty good too. Memories come from all around us, but my best memories are those times i spent with my college fellows and all the trips we had while bunking the college :D

I don't know why my best memories are from my childhood except to say that my childhood was a happy time in my life complete with a brother I loved, a best friend, mom and a surrogate father in a much-beloved Boy Scout leader. Other best memories are scattered throughout my adult life and brighten each day in my older life.

Some of the best memories that come to my mind are from my childhood. That's the time when something as simple as running down a hill gives you feelings of exhilaration and seeing your parents cheer you on as you recite a poem in front of relatives gives you immense satisfaction. I think the inherent carefree attitude everyone has as a child allows them to live fully in those moments which in turn creates everlasting memories.

I think that would be difficult to decide. I have many sweet memories from my childhood.

Ah, some of my best memories are from when I was a kid. Those were the days. I loved catching lightening bugs in the summer, and I loved sledding in the winter. Wish I could go back in time :cry:

my best memory is when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Then, my life got change and became meaningful since I belong in the Kingdom of God.

My greatest memories are from various ages. I have some from childhood, but a majority of them are from late teen years to now like when my family and I play spoons around the same kitchen table my dad played at with his grandparents.
