Do You Love Reading?
Like you, and most writers, I've loved to read almost as long as I can remember. Reading and
writing are closely tied together. It's like a language, once you learn to understand it, you find
yourself speaking it too.
I learned to read and speak English as a second language when I started school, and I often tell the funny story of how my mother prepared me and when I
first spoke those prepared answers on my arrival at that one-room country schoolhouse.
By Christmas I was reading books to my younger siblings! I devoured books more than food, and read
anything, even a box full of Readers' Digests when Dad was a garbage man. In school, I gobbled
up detective series, romances and adventure, even biographies.
As I grew older I became more discriminating, and in a period of deep spiritual searching and growth
in the 1970s and early 80s, I began to look for specific books to help me get closer to God. I
wanted to understand His ways in my life, and how to get answers to my prayers - consistently.
Fortunately, I had a boring receptionist-switchboard operator job for most of those years, and was
allowed to read hours on end. The books that came into my hands at that time were
the books that shaped me into who and what I am today.
Then, when writing poetry one day, I remembered that I had never thanked my first grade teacher for
teaching me to read! So I wrote a poem, I Owe You Gratitude to express
how special this skill of reading and writing is to me.
