The ABCs of Life

When you were little, I am sure you learnt to sing the ABC song, and it probably stood you in good stead for the rest of your life. In school, you learnt the order of the letters first, then had exercises to help reinforce it. Do you remember rearranging words into alphabetical order or searching for a definition in the dictionary, locating a book at the library or even listening for your name in roll call - if you were a W or a Y or a Z, you had a long wait. Did the first letter of your surname affect you? For example, our surname starts with W. I have noticed at special Assemblies my daughter is always the last or second last to receive her award. She doesn't get to stand on stage whilst the others are presented. Does that matter? Maybe, maybe not.
If you are out of school, do you still use the alphabet? 
Because words influence our existence, and are, impacting our life significantly, I had an idea that using the alphabet would be a thought-provoking and interesting way to write a blog. I already have a blog at which details much of what I have been through in my life. I don't want to repeat what I have written there. Instead this one will consist of reflections, articles, poetry, stories, or anything really, that supports the word of the day. I hope it will be fun, entertaining and inspirational. Will you come along for the ride with me? :)
