A Story To Tell

Each night I read to Stephanie. It is calming for her to here a familiar voice and helps her slip away into dreamland. I remember wanting the same thing done for me when I was sick. I usually continue reading out loud for a good hour after she falls asleep just to make sure she's comfortable for the night. It is so nice to be read to.
Last night when I came home from visiting Stephanie I found my Dad reading to the boys in bed. He read out of a book that his mom used to read to him in th 40's and 50's; true stories about "Growing Up", "Once Upon a Time" stories, "Pioneer Stories", "Holiday Time" stories.
We all have a story to tell...don't we.

Love, Mr. Nielson
