My Reading Buddy

It is rare that I have one son all to myself but the past two weekends I made it a point to take one at a time with me for a getaway from home.  ZJ and I headed straight for our favorite hangout - Barnes and Noble.  As I stood in line at the cafe, (he wanted a spinach artichoke strata!) I turned to see him in this reading pose.  Our stacks of "to look through" books were equally high, our eagerness to find just the right story the same.  I couldn't resist sneaking this photo, a memory of my reading buddy and me.  This one moment in time, capturing our shared love of words, books and bookstores. 




  1. What a blessing to share your love of books with you son! There is nothing like starting a new book. How cool that he shares that love with you! Blessings!

  2. Thank you Donna Lynn. I sure hope he remains a reader as he grows up!

  3. Such a sweet picture...and a great memory. :)

  4. What a wonderful moment! How great to have a reading buddy. We love books and bookstores too! :)

  5. to intentionally take the time for one on one bonding. That is so important – and so reveals your mama's heart for your babies. This is a day that I needed smiles – and this post that is so full of heart – that made me smile. Grace and peace to you Misty - and tthank you.


~Grace and peace to you~
