gratitude practice: day 12

i have loved the library since i was a small child. i remember coming home with a stack books (i was so excited that i could borrow all of these books for free!) and devouring them one after the other - sweet valley twins, baby sitters club, goosebumps - just to name a few. beyond the books, the library offered a bit of tranquility, a break from the rush of the every day, a place where it was ok to be quiet.


my love for the library continues to this day. one of the first things i did when i moved to portland was get a multnomah county library card. thanks to the library i'm able to indulge my curiosity - whether it's in jewelry-making, vegetarian cooking, or home decorating - and keep myself entertained with the latest novel from a favorite author or the latest season of game of thrones. so today i am thankful for the library and the world that it opens up for me and so many others.
