Waiting At The Hospital
--by denim1951, posted Feb 15, 2008
I was at the hospital for a doctor's appointment and no matter when you get to the hospital, you know you will have to wait. So I generally carry some books and magazine to read and share with other people. It does help the wait, for sure. :)
Lately, I have been re-reading childrens classics so I just happened to have some with me. A little girl noticed I was reading bedtime stories and very innocently asked, "Why are you reading bedtime stories during the day?"
I figured it was a good question. :) "I like to read books of all kinds, no matter what time of the day it is," I replied. When I asked her if she had read that book before, she said no. So I asked her if she would like to have the book to read? She was so happy to get such a nice book and that alone was a blessing to me.
I think I will find some other kids books at the thrift store because it is usually only 99 cents. Then I can share them with kids especially at the hospital or clinic. I like to share happiness wherever I go. It also cheers me up too to make someone else happy.
I also love to read the stories of everyone on this website. It's a blessing for sure.
