I know I've been in and out pretty erratically for the last few weeks, but family duties are heightened around these parts as of late. That said, you live life one day at a time, and you get out of it what you put into it.
Books make the world better and every minute you spend with your nose in one is a minute when you are learning and growing. And that's all we can do. Try to live better. Try to be better.
In the time it takes to read those 32 pages, you can travel to another world and take a little one along for the ride. If you allow those lessons, those little moral poems that picture books provide, to guide you through your days, you'll do nothing but bring joy to the people around you. Stories. Pictures. Words. The stuff of life itself. Happiness.
This will be my last post until after Christmas. I'll be back next week with more regularly scheduled programing. Until then, I hope everyone travels safe, has a great holiday and gets loads of books from the jolly 'ole elf.
