52 Weeks of Gratitude
I have had little formal education.
My education has been from life experience,
on the job training and my love of reading.
Books have taught me many things and taken me many places.
I am so very grateful to my elementary school teachers
who gave me what I would need in life when they taught me to read.
When I was young I read whatever caught my eye.
Sometimes I would go to the library and just randomly pick books.
Some I didn’t like, some I didn’t understand much of the content.
Most I liked and learned from.
Some I fell in love with.
These days I read less to learn and more for pure pleasure,
but still I learn.
