Project 365 : Day 66 of 365

Sacrifices
These books reminds me of my childhood. It was circa 1989 when my parents bought me and my sisters these collection of encyclopedia and learning books. I recalled my mum saying that each month my dad need to pay about RM120 for the next 18months as part of the then easy payment package. I know many my age or around my age would know these books. I learnt a lot from them. Basic stuffs that kept my mind open and made me want to learn more. As a parent myself, i see wifey buying a lot of books too for the two kids. But i feel they are too young to comprehend them and if i assume along the same logic where "people typically do not appreciate what they have and always take them for granted" theory, my kids stand a very good chance not to appreciate these later in life if they were to recieve these. I have always known how much my dad has to sacrifice for the family, and these books are there at their home to remind me and my sisters just that; plus they are a boy to read nonetheless!
