Library Love Notes
I think that a fellow blogger has snuck into my house and tucked a note in my Stephen King paperback. No, I haven’t lost my mind. I swear.
That is either true, or I am experiencing a very odd coincidence.
Okay, here’s the story.
On July 31st Jess Witkins wrote a wonderfully inspirational blog entitled “I’m Enough: Learning Lessons from a Mirror That Talks Back.” If you haven’t read it, shame on you! But here’s your chance. Click the link!
I’ll wait right here while you read.
Are you done yet???
Wasn’t it awesome?
And for those of you who are unwilling to follow my very important instructions, here’s a short summary. Basically Jess had the chance to experience a mirror that talks back to you very specifically and very nicely, telling you the things that you ought to tell yourself, but never do. Does this sound familiar to anyone – that feeling that you aren’t enough – that you aren’t good at this or at that?
The response to hearing these things can be very emotional. (You’d know this if you read her blog.)
Anyway . . . fast forward a week or so and I am still thinking about that blog and that mirror and about how I need to be kinder to myself because I AM ENOUGH.
Then last night . . . I grabbed a book from my waiting-to-be-read stack. It’s a Stephen King trade paperback from 2005. It’s part of the Hard Case Crime series and was one of the many “withdrawn” books that my son brought home from the high school library when they were reorganizing shelves.
And I found this note tucked between pages 34 and 35.
Seriously! How freaky is that!
So maybe Jess didn’t sneak into my house, but how else can you explain this. (I refuse to believe that this is a random note from some previous reader of this paperback!)
Any other theories out there??
