“A busy schedule is the enemy of reading. Agreeing in principle with all the benefits of books, you may at this point simply sigh and say, ‘I wish we had more time for reading.’ But the fact remains that we arrange time for what we think is truly important.” ~ Gladys M. Hunt, Honey for a Child’s Heart
I was directed to a wonderful article yesterday by The Mom Creative. It really, really caught my eye. Crystal Paine, who blogs with tremendous success at MoneySavingMom, home educates her children, and has as busy a life as the rest of us; read 130 books last year! Yes. Truth, right there. She offers an explanation regarding how she makes time for reading in this post. Excellent advice for sure; and some I am personally taking this morning as you read. I actually always take books with me wherever I go, in case of a wait. I’m generally not disappointed. There were other tips, however, that I plan on implementing pronto!
Many of you wonderful people have asked for an update on Son #4 and the ongoing hand saga.
Yesterday, we were privileged to see a tremendous hand surgeon, Dr. Barth Riedel, who this morning, is placing three pins and a new cast. Alas, the valiant ER efforts didn’t work. Hands, are indeed, tricky things. And again, we are so very grateful for an incredible specialist, dedicated to excellence in a time of tremendous medical turmoil and crisis in our country. He assured us everything will be good as new!
I’m also grateful for the ability to read, to learn through the pages of an author’s work, and to be transported to places beyond an OR where there isn’t a doggone thing I can do!
