I don’t ask my mama many questions about her life growing up, but there is one question, being that she was brought up in the 1970s, that I can’t help but inquire about- her drug use. I’ve heard that the 1970s was the experimental drug years but my mama always proudly declares that she has never tried a thing.
I even admitted to her that I’d tried marijuana in my lifetime, thinking that would get her to come clean, but she remains adamant. And since I have no proof, I just have to take her word for it.
This made me think about some of the things my children (God willing) may ask me about. I don’t think there’s anything that I’d keep away from them- I can’t think of anything I’ve done to be embarrassed about. Plus, I believe that children see the truth, even when adults try to hide it from them. And perhaps, they just may learn something.
Take a look over your life, would you proudly admit some of the things that you’ve done, if your children ask? If so, what are they? If not, what would you hide and why?
