What are you thankful for today?
I am thankful for books!! I have been an avid reader since I was a kid. I remember spending my recess time reading books in the library when I was in elementary school – of course I went to the library if I was bored fighting with the boys in the playground.
Many people say that books are the window to the world and I’d like to say amen to that! Through books I gain new perspectives, learn new things, and get exposed to different ideas outside of my little world. Reading books can be some kind of a recreation to me and it feels good to be able to read for pleasure.
Another quote says that with books you can travel the world without moving an inch. Yes, I agree with that. Even with books, you can go beyond time and space. Reading books allows you to learn about what happened in the past in a place far away from where you’re from. Reading books gives you an opportunity to broaden your horizon about how other cultures view things differently from the way you do. Reading books also helps you gain insight from what other people have experienced without you experiencing it yourself! Isn’t that wonderful? Books can offer you more than you know. Books can give you more opportunity than you know. I am thankful for books! I am thankful that God created people with a gift of writing so that they come up with more and more books every day.
What about you? What are you thankful for today? Don’t look too far, just look around. Maybe it is not a grand thing but just a simple little thing that you have taken for granted. Like books, maybe?
Have a great night!
