Day 10

I am grateful for books. I love them so much. I have an insane fear that one day in the future kids will stop reading for enjoyment all together...and so we build our library. I will do anything neccesary to instill in my child (and future children) a love of reading. Starting with reading to them all the time, but if neccessary extending all the way to bribery and coercing. I think that one of the reasons I am so passionate about reading is that all of the books I have read have helped to shape me into the person I am today. As a young teenager I learned to feel great empathy so many others of the human race as I explored the world through the eyes of novels. I am so grateful that just because I don't have resources to travel the world doesn't mean I have to be ignorant of it. What a blessing it is to occasionally be transported away from this world as I lose myself in a great fantasy, ones that continue to push boundaries of creativity and inspire deep thoughts on religion, conscience & accountability. So thankful today for the written word.
