Prompt from Yesterday: “Borrowed”

Think the people at the Daily Post group of Word Press must be addicted to the children’s book / movie “The Borrowers” because they chose the word “Borrowed” for yesterday’s prompt to inspire our creations for the day.

Things I Borrow

Started with books from the school’s library.  Ended up reading every book they owned by the time I left grade school.  Then went to junior/ senior high school.  Not many good books in that library either, so I limited my reading there.  Ventured to the town’s public library where they ended up claiming I had stolen a book, guess they didn’t check their returns slot well enough.  I had returned the book when it was due.

Went off to college in another state of the country to expand my knowledge of the world.  Borrowed tons of books from the huge libraries there!  The day after graduation I got married,  Borrowed my god mother’s wedding veil for the ceremony.   No, it wasn’t blue, but pure white hand made by her mother, my Aunt Verna.

These days, I prefer to own the books I read allowing me to reread them as much as I desire.  I tend to go back through my favourites on a regular basis, to remember the joy I felt while reading it the first time!

Please Help Fight Terrible Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.
