So one year, my mom asked for a Nintendo system for Christmas. It was when the original system came out with Super Mario brothers. It kinda of looked like the picture to the above. With it she got a game called “The Legend of Zelda”. We played for hours. It was so much fun! My daughter sat with us and mom would play, but she liked navigating and I would run the controller. I’m surprised I didn’t wind up with carpal tunnel earlier in my life.
The reason I’m posting this is because as many know, my mom had a stroke and is in skilled nursing right now. Because of her eyesight she won’t be able to play and when we played it was at least 20 to 25 years ago. We had so much funny and that is one of my good memories with my mom.
So in the last few days, I started playing a game called “Diggy’s Adventures”. It is not anything like Zelda and I actually have most of the zelda games but no one to really play with that enjoys it. As I was playing last night I was remembering how much fun it was and how I miss those times. I’m actually tearing up a little bit as I type this. As a said in an earlier post, my mom was my best friend.
So I’m a little nostalgic today. There have been many new Zelda games and as I said, I have the majority. I even have the original for my Wii system. Maybe, one of these days, one of my grand children will want to play and even if I have to be navigator, that will be okay, because I will be making new memories and maybe they will remember that time like I have done.
Have a great weekend!
