As Mother’s Day quickly approaches, it’s a time to reflect on how much I appreciate, respect and admire my mom. After all, she is the one who made sure I did my best in school by making sure I finished my homework, kissed my boo-boo’s when I got hurt, and was my biggest cheerleader when I did something great. My mom is also the one who took me to get my own library card. Okay, so I have always been a “book” geek. I LOVE reading! I will read anywhere; in a chair, on the stair, in a train or a plane (I think you get the idea). When I got my own library card, my mom opened up a whole new world for me. After all, when school ended for the summer, where would I get my books? I couldn’t afford to buy new ones every week. I devour books and I don’t mean I eat them, I just read books really fast because I cannot wait to see what happens at the end of them! I remember walking up the stairs to the Youth Services area and seeing rows and rows of books just waiting for me to check them out. Mom made sure I came for story times, puppet shows and of course she signed me up for Summer Reading!
