30 Days of Gratitude: Day 3

I am grateful for books and for the ability to both lose and find myself in reading.  

I am grateful for all the places and people I've discovered through reading, the knowledge I've gleaned, and the inspiration that's fueled my imagination. I'm thrilled each time I discover a "new" writer and happy to travel with him for awhile, discovering a new view of the world. 

  I'm grateful for having an appreciation of words: their beauty and power.  

 I am grateful for the invention of the printing press. 

  I am grateful to my mother for reading to me as a child, for teaching me to love and cherish books, and for encouraging my appreciation of the art of writing. 

 I am grateful for having the time to read.
