I will always remember, never forget and I'll let that day work within me what it should. One thing being-- to enjoy each day as a gift. For they are. Days are meant to be cherished and we're meant to learn something new on each one, something which will allow us to appreciate the next day even more and act more kindly, too.
At least, that's what I believe.
Many things help me enjoy this good Life which God's given me, yes, even in 2012, and one of those things?
And what type of book do I often step into when 2012 Life feels complicated, dark and ugly? Scholastic books. Books written for the young at heart, those with imaginations still pulsating strong.
And yes I'm mentioning those again because, well, I'd not ordered anything from Ebay in years (years!), but look what I won this morning:
Oh. My. Goodness. Thirty-one delicious Scholastic books for just $9.99 (well, not counting the $5-something for shipping).
I feel so blessed. These are truly like 31 presents from God--you just don't know. Well, maybe you do. Yeah, you probably do realize how this feels.
Thirty-one lovely places to go. And thirty-one groups of people to visit on any sort of day-- good, bad, ugly or in-between--and to keep my imagination young when it's tempted to fade with age. Thirty-one books to remind me of what's still right in this world.
God is good.
