Happy Thanksgiving eh?
It’s Thanksgiving here in Canada and today, before I head out to a family gathering and load up on food and wine (and become increasingly tired), I want to say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and give thanks for the fact that I can read.
I don’t know what it feels like not to be able to read though at times when I have looked at a foreign language written on a paper and I have no idea what it says I get frustrated and sad. I can only imagine that those who can’t read feel something similar. I believe reading opens our minds to new ideas and creates fertile ground for imagination. The beautiful thing about reading is that anyone can learn at any age.
So I am thankful for being able to read, and I am thankful for books.
Now off to eat some poor turkey, who if he only knew how to read, might have avoided the dinner table.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
