I found a few smiles this morning: a picture, sent to me in an email by a generous soul, of a bull dog stretched out in sleepy joy on a bed (picture below); a memory story of a little girl in a library, one who liked to shove Cheerios up her nose for no reason, who fell in love with books and libraries at a very young age; and of thinking of the day ahead, a good day to finish a book that I am actually enjoying, which has been rare these past few months.
Reading is one of my pleasures. I could normally read two books a week, if not more, depending on time allowed. I barely finished a book in the last three months at all, sometimes taking two weeks to just get through one book, if not giving up on it altogether. Yes, it is a partial escape, but there is so much out of my control, and as long as I don’t use to not keep searching…then I deem it a worthwhile escape, for now.
I hope you find smiles today, something to laugh about, someone to share it with, and that anyone you care about who is troubled in any way can find one today too.
