I had a difficult night earlier and felt desperately depressed for awhile. Just everything had me feeling hopeless and sad and overwhelmed for a few hours. Then I grabbed a book, and it was like medicine to my soul. I don’t know if anyone else feels this way about reading, but it truly has saved me from drowning in my problems many times. A good author who weaves a good story can really lift me up and out of my reality for awhile at least, and helps me get my perspective back, as well as spend some quiet time in solitude…..I found that experience again tonight. I’m so grateful for a good book!
