Today I am grateful for the ability to read and write. I know there are so many people in the world that are unable to read. They might never have an opportunity to enter another world, another life, another experience that is not their own. Reading has been a life saver for me many times through the years. I know there are people out there that are unable to write down their emotions, experiences, even their own names. I would not be able to function in this life if I couldn’t write. Many take reading and writing for granted, and I’ve often heard people say, “I hate reading” or ” I don’t have time to read.” Stop for a moment and think how empty your life would be without those two things.
