Forever Young

Vera has an immense effect on my 88-year-old grandma.

Somehow, she makes her younger. When granny cajoles her, she sounds like a little girl with a high-pitched voice. She gets down on all fours to play with Vera on her mat. She smiles a lot too.

I sometimes wonder who will outlive the other. It's just a fleeting thought. Both of them, so precious to me, to be treasured more, for time is not on their side.
