I have loved reading ever since I can remember. So many things about who I am came from what I read in books. Secret, stolen hours of the night where I would fly through a story. The end when I would sob because I would miss the characters.
It was through reading books that I realized love is bigger than things I have experienced. There are situations I read about that I would never go through, and they taught me about why it was important to show love, to accept love, and to always realize that you never know what people are going through.
It also taught me that writing and reading are a love language in and of themselves. Words have power to make us feel love, in and for people that aren’t even real. How amazing, right?
