The Daily Post, Writing Prompts

Third From the Top

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Third From the Top.”

Today’s post is inspired by a prompt.  The third sentence from the third post in my reader came from blog Eleventh Stack.  Their original post was titled Little Golden Memories.

 ” My first memory of having a favorite author whose name and work I knew well is definitely James Marshall. ”  ~Ginny

I’ve been an avid reader for almost as long as I can remember.  My love of books started when I was quite small.  My mom would read to me each night, books written by Beatrix Potter, Johnny Gruelle, and Beverly Cleary just to name a few.  They inspired my imagination with worlds where anything was possible.  Kittens dressed in pinafores, dolls earned candy hearts, and mice road around on motorcycles.  As a child, I was oblivious to the writers; I only saw their characters.  As an adult, I envy the minds that could create such marvelous stories!  To this day, I enjoy reading books written for children and young adults.

My world is filled with bills, housework, and the everyday stress of living, but is that all there is?  No!  Not when I can slip away for a few minutes or longer, to imagine places filled with Puddle-Ducks and maybe…a bit of magic!

Have a great day!  JH
