STANDING IN LINE

I am quite sure that Ryan, Dillon and Beth are in line somewhere in Tulsa, or were in line last night at midnight, awaiting the purchase of the new Harry Potter book. They, along with millions, have been excited for this important day and have had their calendars marked. It is a regular routine for them.

It makes me happy to see all our grandchildren eager to read. They always have a book tucked under their arms. Fiction, non-fiction, or instructional manuals, they are drinking it in.

We can count on the children arriving at our house with cameras, video games, dvds, Leap Frog and other electronics, but also have their current favorite books with them. (Yet they somehow manage to have forgotten toothbrushes, deoderant, socks or underwear.......)

Our family members know what an emotional week this has been. My precious son and daughter have been tested to the limit and excelled through love. In a way we have all been standing in line and it is a breath of fresh air to have the little children lead us all back to the real world. Waiting for Harry Potter it's business as usual.

  1. My son began reading the new Potter book yesterday morning. He read all day long and until well after midnight and he finshed the whole book. He's a true fan!!

    My daughter and I have begun reading it, but we are not as committed to getting through it in record time as my son was.
