Will sat down today and asked to read some books...what books you ask? Four Dr. Seuss books which his Nonna had brought when she visited in May. As I sat there reading so many memories came flooding back. Memories of many nights at my grandparents house in Oklahoma City where my Grampa would tuck me in and read. If I close my eyes I can still hear his voice reading "If I Ran the Circus". He read with such passion and fun in his voice...maybe that's why the memories are so vivid. I remember being taken away to a different world when he'd sit there and read to me and I begged for just one more page when it was time to sleep. I still have the very book that was read to me hundreds of times. The book is full of character, worn with love and marked with crayon. I loved that book so much that at my wedding I bought a new copy to give to my Grampa as a gift. I wanted us to both have the book to relive the memory. Now I can read it, along with other Dr. Suess books, to my boys and I hope that they too carry the memory with them and pass it on to their children some day.
