Thankful for Books. Thankful for Libraries. Thankful for Family and Friends.

If you know me at all, you know that I love reading. I was thinking the other day, that of all of the many, many gifts in my life (and I have many), the gift of reading is one of the gifts I treasure most. I read every single day. I read to learn. I read to escape. I read to grow as a human. I read to understand.  I read to listen.

This Thanksgiving Break I will hunker down with my family and read by a fire. One of the books I will read is Amber Keyser's Back from Broken. Here is a beautiful article written by Amber that tells the tender story behind the story.

What will you and/or your children be reading over the Thanksgiving Break? School Library Advocates are collecting input on the School Libraries Matter: Beaverton Facebook Page. Please visit the site, "like" the site, and share what you're reading.

Speaking of libraries, if you know me at all, you know I also love libraries. I recently authored a guest post for the blog. I hope you will pop on over to their site to give it a read.

Our family has a tradition of celebrating Thanksgiving early. This past weekend we had 32 family members sharing food, stories, and laughter around our plentiful table. I am so blessed.

I am also grateful for you, dear reader. Thank you for giving me a space to share my thoughts, share my ideas, and share my passion for learning and life.
