Blogging from A to Z Challenge - April 2012!
Welcome! Here we are Day 2 of our Blogging Challenge!
Today's letter is
Books, to me, whenever I see one, I think brings these first thoughts I am writing down because of how I felt about them as a child. When I saw a book, I thought of my father. My father traveled a lot for his job when I was a child, and when he was home on the weekends, I could depend on seeing this tall, smart, wise, protective man, who loved me unconditionally. A man who lit up the moment he stepped foot in the door after being gone for the week and seeing us, his family. This man, who, in the evenings after his shower would not watch television, but instead, he enjoyed what was held between the two covers of a book. I saw the enjoyment he got out of this thing, and knew they held great things for me when I got older. Once I learned how to read, one of the first books my father would use for me to read out of so he could show me off with how well I could read, and at such a young age, was a TV Guide. My mother also instilled in me this love of books as well.
Books bring comfort. love, wonderful stories, fun, educational, places to go, new people to meet, and . . . wait, books are kind of like people! Well, whatever! Books are DIVINE!
