Readathon Begin the Week with Words
Part of my Saturday (yesterday) schedule cleared out at the last minute and then I woke up sick and my whole day cleared out because there was no way I was going anywhere. Luckily, I felt okay enough to read, so Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon was still in the mix once I drank up some DayQuil! I didn't start right at 8am and did some laundry in between (even sick, it still needs done), but still managed to read one entire book over the course of the day, which I've never done during a readathon before. I always had other things to do or distractions. I was so excited! So today's Sunday Sentence comes from the one book I read from start to finish, The Life We Bury, by Allen Eskens.
"We are surrounded every day by the wonders of life, wonders beyond comprehension that we simply take for granted. I decided that day that I would live my life—not simply exist. If I died and discovered heaven on the other side, well, that’d be just fine and dandy. But if I didn’t live my life as if I was already in heaven, and I died to find nothingness, well . . . I would have wasted my life. I would have wasted my one chance in all of history to be alive.” The Life We Bury, by Allen Eskens
