January: A busy time for me. Most of the family decided to read me through this year. They kept me busy for the first two weeks. They have forgotten me now.
February: Clean up time. I was dusted yesterday and put back in my place. My owner used me for a few minutes last week. He had an argument and needed a reference.
March: I had a busy day the first of the month. My owner was appointed leader of something and used me. I got to go to worship for the first time this year—Easter Sunday.
April: Grandpa visited us. He kept me on his lap for an hour reading 1 Corinthians 13. He seems to think more of me than he used to.
May: I have a few green stains on my pages. Had some early spring flowers pressed in me.
June: I look like a scrapbook. They have me stuffed full of newspaper clippings—one of the girls got married.
July: They put me in a suitcase today. I guess we are off on a vacation. I wish I could stay home as I will have to stay in this thing for a month.
August: Still in the suitcase.
September: Back home again in my old place with a lot of company. The TV Guide, Sports Illustrated, and newspapers are on top of me. I wish I was read as much as they are.
October: They used me a little today. One of them is very sick. Right now I am shined up and on the center of the table. I think the preacher is coming.
November: Back in my old place. Was asked today if I was a scrapbook.
December: They are getting ready for Christmas, so I’ll be covered with wrapping paper and packages.
