It is wise to inculcate the habit of reading in the young. Sadly, this is something that my parents didn’t bother, which was why I was struggling during my early school days. I had no idea how to read, nor how to write composition. Thankfully, I have an aunt, Auntie Mary, who insisted that reading is the way to acquire knowledge. She lent me her children’s books. Each time she visited, she would exchange the existing books for another new batch. Sounded like a library huh! It was since then, that I discovered my passion in reading.
During one of my teenage years, another aunt (Auntie Linda) gave me a book as a present. That was my very first book, a book that I rightfully own. That was also the first time (and last…haha) I received a present from that aunt. I wondered if she’d felt pressurised to buy me a gift because she bought one for my cousin (her precious niece) who was living with me at that time. Anyway, I was grateful. It was Michael W. Smith‘s Old Enough to Know. Instantly, I fell in love with the book. He mentioned some songs in the book, which I later managed to get hold of. Here, I would like to share those songs with you (all by Michael W. Smith).
Enjoy! ❤ ❤ ❤
