I am a book lover. To curl up with a delicious cup of coffee and enjoy a good book is one of my favorite things to do.
I would not be able to enjoy this joy and pleasure without the ability to read, or literacy. It's such a blessing. Not only does it allow me to read for pleasure, but it opens up multiple doors through further education. I was blessed with parents that read to me as child. I grew up watching my mother enjoy reading... and I have fallen in her footsteps.
I am thankful for literacy. I do not want to take this gift for granted.
