Still plugging along! Gosh I wish I had decided to do this project on November the first rather than later and now playing catch-up.

An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge. ~ Proverbs 18:15

Journaling: Today I am thankful for . . . my love of books and reading. I don’t remember when I didn’t love books. The Little Golden books Mother brought home for me lined my bookcase when I was a child were always a treasure to me. She too loved children’s books and started my collection of our shared love. I remember too that Mother would take me to the little white library on Dixie Avenue where my favorite book was Water Babies Circus. Soon the library moved and I could walk to visit with Miss Clara, our librarian and check out anything I wanted. I loved the orange Childhoods of Famous Americans most of all and read most all of them I think. I loved reading to my children and remember finding it hard to find the time for reading my own books. Now I cherish the time spend reading and sharing books with friends both near and far.
