หลังจากที่ได้เข้ามาอ่านหลายๆเรื่องที่เขียน โดยที่ไม่ได้ตั้งใจ

รู้สึกว่ายิ่งอ่านยิ่งสนุกดี เขียนได้น่าติดตาม ทำให้รู้สึกอยากอ่านต่อไปเรื่อยๆ

อ่านเเล้วทำให้คิดถึงบ้าน คิดถึงความทรงจำเก่าๆในวัยเด็ก  คิดถึงสภาพความเป็นอยู่ที่บ้าน

 ขอบคุณสำหรับประสบการณ์ดีๆที่มาเล่าให้ฟัง      อย่าลืมมีเรื่องราวใหม่ๆมาเล่าให้ฟังอีกน่ะค่ะ
