Storybook reading is a fantastic hobby. And congratulations for your running.

really felt glad reading the blog .. it was to my surprise that such young minds are online and expressing their views. its a good quality and i would personally encourage such initiative.in addition to these public blogs, i feel you should read few good books and blogs, and write personal blogs over the time. this would improve your ability to express your views and which every blog you feel that its a quality piece can open for public. these are the things which i feel and not the only way to do things. so feel free to express your views and express yourself to the world, world is watching you to perform your best.

Hi Maureen - It was neat for me to read about your life. I was sorry to hear that your dad passed away. I also like running! I will be running in a race next weekend. Will you get to run in any races any time soon. Many of the best runners in the world come from Kenya! Do you know who Paul Tergat is? I'm sure that you do. They call him The Gentleman. Keep writing!

Dear Maureen,
You write very well! It's a pleasure to meet you. I'm Allie. We have many things in common.

I have loved to read storybooks since the age of 7. It's a great escape and lots of fun. Please, continue with this hobby. I hope you can find ways to share it with others.

I take notes, too. I try to write every day. I keep my notes in a diary/journal. I began the hobby after my dad passed away. I was at your current year of age when he died.

I have always wanted to run but could never find the stamina... to be able to run for a long distance. Congratulations of your achievement.

It is wonderful that you have everything you need. Many people live with many possession of the world and still feel they are without anything. May you stay happy and content with the simple things.
