Reason for Celebration

Dear World and Everyone in it,

There is so much sadness, ugliness, hate, and brokenness in our lives.  

I am weary.

I know you are too.

I thought you might like something to celebrate.  

I come today to help.

Meet my son Isaac's Maternal Grandmother.  
(If you don't know Isaac, I am sorry. He is also a person worth celebration.)

Isaac's beautiful Grandmother is 70+ years old.
(Or something close, she cannot exactly be sure. It matters not.)

The point is, this woman has SEEN SOME FREAKIN LIFE/JOY/SORROW/PAIN.

Man, oh man, has she seen it.

Anyway, I thought you might like to know, she never got to go to school as a kid.

But now ...

She has begun to read and write.

Old Grandma.
New Tricks.

Be hopeful.
