I am thankful for books. I love to read. It’s an escape. When I am reading, I can shut the rest of the world out, including my children. I am taken to worlds and lives other than mine. And I can read the same books over and over, mainly because I read so fast, I miss information the first time around! My mom worked hard to instill the love of reading in her children, and I have instilled in my children. We all love to read. When The Teenager goes on his mission, we are already planning on making his room the library, so I can get all my books out of the boxes in the garage and onto shelves!
