Window to the Soul

The saying "eyes are the window to the soul" is so very true.  I believe you can see so much through a person's eyes.  My husband's eyes tell me so much.  I can see the "sparkle" in his eyes occasionally.  When I see that, it is so heartwarming.  I can also see his pain through his eyes.  I know his spirit and soul are OK because I can see that through his eyes.  Since he cannot communicate because of his brain injury, there are times when he reacts so appropriately to things around him.  Our 3 year old grandson was misbehaving the other day and my husband got upset and told him that "you are being a bad boy".   My heart leaps for joy when this happens (and it is very rare and sometimes months before this happens) and it gives me a certain peace that his soul and spirit are intact and well.

Leave it to a child to bring it out.

That must have been a very precious moment for you. My mother's mind wandered a lot in her last years, but frequent contact with her young great-granddaughter really helped to keep her mind in the present. It was wonderful to see.
