Every Friday, Lisa-Jo and friends join up for a common writing prompt. We all give it just five minutes and share what’s on our heart or our mind. Here’s mine…
9:17 am Start
Beautiful is what I think of when I see my granddaughter’s face every morning.
Her red curls and gray-green eyes are nothing short of breath-taking.
She often reminds me of her mother at that age, but with a little more spring in her step.
She is a little more in control. She is the boss around these parts and everyone knows it.
Her beauty flows beyond her hair and her eyes, straight to the heart of the person lucky enough to meet her.
She’s a jewel, a gem. She’s a ray of sunshine in an often dreary world.
Her smile can melt a heart from across a field, and she, even at less than two and a half, knows that she has this power.
She has her Daddy and her Papa wrapped around several of her fingers.
She’s beautiful inside and out.
Even when she’s covered in apple sauce or spaghetti, there is a beauty that is unmistakable.
That beauty is my granddaughter.
Stop! 9:22 am
