Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Day Twenty-One of Thanks

Giving Thanks Day Post Twenty-One

I am very thankful for public libraries.
When we move one of the first things we do
is check out the local library.
I remember walking to town to the library 
at a very young age and how happy I was
to be able to pick out books to read. : )
 Where else can you walk in and take whatever
books you want off the shelf and bring them home
for free!!
Not only books but
I've been to some libraries where you can even check
out puzzles and toys.
The use of computers are also available.
Though the library here in town is quite small with not
all the books of big town libraries,
the librarians WILL find the book that you want
from another county.
The librarians here in town are friendly,
helpful and even know your name. : )

My Town Library
A happy day to you.
Happy reading.

  1. It's been a long time since I used the library. I wonder if they have e-books?
    I am addicted to kindle for IPad. Don't get me wrong, I have a deep love for my hardcover books but the e reader is so much easier on the eyes.
    I remember the libraries in the city of Chicago when I was growing up and they had just about anything one needed. The old library in downtown Chicago was old and musty with ladders and carved ceilings, it was so cool.

  2. Thanks for sharing that heart warming post. Have a wonderful week ahead!

  3. I've always like libraries. My first job, part time at age 16, was at the local library.

  4. Ah! One of my favorite things to do! I worked in libraries for several years while in high school and college, even full-time at my college library following my graduation! Love books and all that goes with them!

  5. I love my local library! I'm so glad that I'm a reader and have always enjoyed reading. Have a blessed day.

  6. I remember when I was young going to our local library. Great memories. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week!

  7. I agree with you Karen. One of the first things we do when we move into a new area is area is check out the library. Growing up every Saturday was library day.

  8. I still remember the library at my elem school. So many good memories

  9. I love your thankful days. And libraries too! I may borrow this theme for the A to Z Challenge in April. I thought I may not participate next year since this past April was indeed the cruelest month for me. But then I thought if I find an inspiring theme, I may just do it. We have to move on, after all. So I may do 26 days of gratitude. I thank you for the inspiration.

  10. A neighboring town has a library with easy chairs and a fireplace. I love reading there, but the only days they light the fireplace is on those bitter cold days when no one wants to be out. Our librarians are very helpful and my daughter-in-law is one of them so I have insider information.
