Seeing Angels


Sometimes, when he awakes from his afternoon nap, he fixes his eyes on a spot on the ceiling and a smile slips onto his lips. A glorious glow spreads upon his upturned face and the smile stretches and spreads until it erupts into cascades of giggles that echo around the room.

I follow his eyes to the ceiling but I only see plaster and paint, because I don't have the eyes of a baby and I can't see the guardian angels that were watching him silently as he slept.
