Today's HAWMC prompt: Third person post. Write about a memory you have but describe it using the third person. Use as many sensory images (sights, sounds, textures, etc) as you can. Don’t use “I” or “me” unless you include dialogue.
She held the baby's tiny hand in her own wrinkled one. He smelled of baby powder and sweetness. A single tear feel down her worn out face. Had he really made it? Was this tiny baby only a dream? It seemed like only yesterday his mother was a tiny baby and now...well, now she was holding on to her grandson.
His loud cries brought her back to reality. He was hungry and she placed him in his mothers arms. She watched as her daughter caressed the fluff of angel soft hair. He yawned and fell asleep. Waves of joy washed over her. Her first grandchild had come into the world only a few short hours ago. She closed her eyes and drifted into a peaceful sleep. They were safe and sound now. No harm would come to them.
