growing up

Each morning when I go into my daughter's room to wake her, I find the book(s) she's reading very neatly placed on the floor beside her bed. Like me, she reads incessantly, and often ends her days with a book.

This morning the juxtaposition of two titles was startling. It seems the little girl is growing up.

Yes, both of them seem to have made big steps from childhood to an adolescence recently. Amazing to watch, and over such a short span of time, too. . .

Something so poignant about her choice, almost like she can sense the ending of childhood.

It is both amazing and poignant, at the same time.

While the parenting process is not always easy, I do feel a sense that the world is fortunate to have both my children in it. They each have gifts to share.
