I am in my local library and was moved to sit down and type a quick entry.

I just saw a young man and his mother sitting at one of the tables in the juvenile section. They had comic books and entry level adult novels on the table in front of them and the young son was teaching his mother to read. She was struggling with the words and looked embarrassed as I passed by, but her boy was obviously so proud of her.

I felt odd stumbling onto such a private moment, but I am grateful for seeing this. It makes me so happy to see people growing together. I can't help but think of all the new and wonderful things that are opening up for this woman. I am so excited for her!
