in my eyes

the girl had been to kindergarten. first grade, maybe. it was probably her third day. A lady who looked like her grandmother swooped her off of the bus before she could even came down all the steps.

the girl filled her grandma's arms, but she was held tight. a bright smile filled her face as she cradled her grandmother's face in her tiny hands and spoke some word of delight and love.

it was only for a moment. the girl was soon set on the ground to walk up the drive hand-in-hand with her grandmother.

but that smile and those gently embracing hands froze time in my eyes.
