Stories. We love them. We live them. We tell them. The stories we love best live in our hearts forever. Did you ever love a story so much, you wished it would never end?
That is the way I feel about “Harry Potter”. This simple children’s story touches me so deeply. It isn’t just about a boy wizard. It is about bravery, loyalty, friendship, family, pain, hardship, and love- so much love. It has touched me deeply for almost 20 years.
With the evolution of smart phones and technology, I have not read as I used to do. I have become distracted and involved with social media and it has been years since I picked up a book. I am sure friends that knew me, find that surprising. I was the girl who always had her nose in a book-starting and finishing several novels in a week. This week, JK Rowling released a new adventure, and my beloved Harry has come alive for me once again. I would write more but the magic of Hogwarts awaits!
I challenge you this week to pick up a book and escape into another world of your choosing. Enjoy!
