Mytwosentences 109


The bald boy of five, dressed head to toe in a full Superman costume, had an unmistakable light in his baby blues that completely lit the carpeted elevator we were sharing with his obviously exhausted father.
As dad hyperventilated pure love through his perfectly matching Superman outfit, he looked into my tearing eyes with a heart-wrenching blend of unimaginable pride and utter helplessness.

  6. This made me tear up! What an awesome place these hospitals are and also the workers. My daughter works in the medical profession and has been a patient since the age of 2…so I know the look of this dad! How in the world can you say so much in two sentences that touches this mommy heart? Beautiful! Keep up the good work. I needed a little break from work and I’m so glad I stopped by to read your beautiful two sentences! 😀
