Be grateful that you can read, it’s a really big deal

Three generations of Yemeni women nestled between books that my late grandma, Mama Sayida, had wished she could read.

Her photo reminds me to be thankful for the magic-like ability to read.

Every time I flip a page I feel her presence.

Every time I turn a new page I am grateful.

Sometimes I imagine reading to her, and then I see her smile and hear her laugh.

I miss you, Mama Sayida. May you rest in peace.
