30 Days of Thankfulness, Day 19: My childhood memories of my sister, Kathryn reading me books when I was a toddler. Even after I was older and had learned to read, I still preferred to listen to her read to me, instead. My favorite was the Trixie Belden series because she had different voices for each character in the Bob-Whites of the Glen. Even Trixie’s kid brother, Bobby. I’ll never forget my childhood pony, Sumi, but years later, I named my first horse after the black gelding, Jupiter in the Trixie Belden books.
