I have always loved to read ...
reading takes me wherever I want to go - to another place, another time.
However, grief has changed my reading habits.
It is more difficult to keep my attention in a book,
for my thoughts and memories wander more often these days.
I get lost in remembering the many, many, many books that Rick and I shared -
how that we would read them often aloud to one another ...
and how that we always discussed the books we were reading individually or together.
I miss that.
I am going to be writing about the books I read in some of my posts.
For my own memory, and perhaps to encourage someone else to find their joy and peace in reading.
I am finding that I read more and more these days,
and I have a growing list of books that I want to read.
But also finding that some of my "tastes" have changed, which is interesting to me!
Being a widow has changed a lot in me.
So, here I am ... being this adventurer in reading once again - and yes, that makes me happy!
Some of my favorite authors & books - -
Grace Livingston Hill
Brenda Wilbee & the Sweetbriar Bride series
Just about anything published by Bethany House
The Love Inspired stories
The Green Mile by Stephen King
I love history - especially American history, or Texas history
loving our Confederacy history more and more
as well as the stories I am finding within the genealogy searches.
The first time I was called "Sunshine" I was about 10 years old, walking out of the Sunday School room and I met our pastor in the hallway.
