Reading is Essential


It frightens me how little people read anymore. It affects EVERYTHING: vocabulary, spelling, knowledge, self-awareness, world-awareness, driving, writing, etc.

Please encourage your family to read more -- and yourself, too, if you've never developed the habit. It will broaden one's horizons in extraordinary ways. It can take your mind off your troubles, teach you about communicating, help you with your scrapbooking (!!), help you learn a new language, teach you to cook more healthfully, help your children with their schoolwork ....the list is ENDLESS.

And it's one more way to take care of yourself along your life's journey.

Thanks for listening,

Melanie

No worries, reading is quite dead yet! My husband and I are avid readers, as are 5 (so far) of our 7 children. It helps that we have surrounded them with books all their lives; we have nearly 20 bookcases full in our home! Thanks for the wonderful word art.
