Today is day 26 of the month long writing challenge sponsored by Two Writing Teachers.
I pull in the driveway and open the car door. I sense movement in the shadows of the window above. We lock eyes. A bright smile spreads across his face. I smile back. As I move towards the walk he follows me with his eyes. His head presses against the glass to keep me in view as I reach the corner, out of sight for a minute. As I near the door I hear the excited giggles and screams of delight traveling through the house. I open the door and see him. He grins and runs towards me yelling my name – Bebe! His arms fold around my neck in a bear hug so tight we both laugh and fall down to the ground in a tumble of legs and arms. Oh the sheer joy and unconditional love of a grandchild!
