A wondrous gift…

Today I am linking to
52 Weeks of Gratitude
The prompt this week is
Something You Take For Granted


Something I take for granted every day is that I can read.
Not that I can see to read though that is a great blessing
but that I know how to read.

I could read a bit before I went to school and was very excited to learn more.
I loved the words and how they went together to make sentences and paragraphs.
To read stories and be transported to other places or learn about new things,
to read about people and how they lived, it was all fascinating.
The library was and still is one of my favorite places,

Today, I take this wondrous gift for granted.
If I have any fear for tomorrow it is that as I grow old
I may lose the ability to read.

  1. Critters and reading have always saved me…still do. With the reading comes the writing; they are intertwined for me.

    No, I never got an email. My email address is linked to my blog and regular Google profile, though. ❤

  2. Reading is something we take for granted, thank you for reminding me to be grateful for this. 🙂 Life would be boring if we couldn’t be always learning knew things through reading.

  3. I’m with you all the way. The first time I found the library I was eight and the love affair hasn’t diminished since then. I love all the services libraries offer today. I think they are a.w.e.s.o.m.e. ❤ ❤

    1. I think libraries are awesome, too. They really do so much more than offer books now. It’s like they are a mini community center.

      1. Yes, and anybody can go, rich or poor. I like that part the best: DVD films, computers, book clubs, ESL help, piano practice room, meeting rooms, lectures, and on and on and on. ❤ ❤

  4. The library was one of my favorite places as a kid too. We were indeed lucky to be raised in a country that values children and reading, and is also rich enough to afford libraries in just about ever town. (I also feel that way about music programs. Sadly, those have decreased since I was a child.) Great post! Have a lovely week! 🙂
