Onastazia's Barefoot Story

My grandma introduced me to my love of books. She would take me to the library and if I was lucky, the bookstore. She was with me when I  got my first library card.When she became blind and oxygen dependent, we would start to get books on tape to listen to. A few years later, she passed away and my love for books wasnt there anymore. A couple years later, I ended up being sick and hospitalized. I dreamt one night in the hospital that she was reading to me and I held on to her. When I woke up to the nurses voice, it was then that I wanted to read again. I went to college and became a teacher. I love reading new books to my children and introducing them to new ideas.
