When my grandmother’s health declined, she became limited to staying in bed almost all day. Many of her freedoms were gone, but she could still smile. During one visit, her glassy eyes starting to twinkle as she tilted her head and smiled at me. As she held my gaze, I suddenly felt a rush of more love than I knew how to accept. I drank in the affection she poured out and wondered why I had never noticed this magical expression of hers before.
