One of my happiest moments is when I am in a comfortable place wrapped up in a lovely story. Reading helped create my ever spinning imagination, my imagination is where I am, me, in peace. I am thankful for my parents especially my mother,who always encouraged my siblings and I to read. I still remember the square small editions of children stories, now lost because of moves and playing library.
As an adult, I pass on the need for reading by encouraging my little sister and niece to read their required school material and to read for pleasure. I have always made it a practise to buy them books even before they could talk. It warms my heart that my girls like reading, they will pick up a book for their relaxation.
I love when parents read to their children or read with them, they are not only nurturing the love for reading but spending time together. Bedtime reading is absolutely cool and no matter what route reading material goes, reading is here to stay.
Read stories to the little ones in your family this weekend and help them grow an imagination which is essential for diversity. Did you grow up reading? If yes, did it play any role with your reading habits now? If you did not grow up reading, what got you into reading? Let me know in the comment section below.

Awww, I love to see old love, don’t you? Doesn’t it warm your heart when you see an aged couple walking hand in hand or hugging? It is absolutely sweet, whether they are married or not, it is especially beautiful when I come across a couple who is on a love journey for 30 years or 40 years.

There is an advertisement on TV of a mom and cute little daughter moving away from their old house into another place. There are boxes everywhere because of course it is moving day but the daughter looks sad clinching her teddy bear close. Her mother before moving day sent an important list to the moving company explaining her daughter’s shyness and her love for dear old teddy. On moving day, the moving guy shows up, he meets the daughter [I am sorry her named slip from my mind] and he has a surprise for her. He has a huge teddy bear strapped to the front of the moving van, the mom is moved mouths thank you to him. That made my heart warm with a few prickling substance in my eyes. That was so sweet! Awww.
