I enjoyed this tender story about how grandchildren can be the silver lining to an empty nest.
I love this line! "Amazing how a dark day can suddenly turn bright with the squeeze of a little hand." Resonates with me having three little ones of my own.

I loved the sweetness in the story, and I could so identify with the empty nest.
I love the way you built the characters into the story line, introducing one at a time so it wasn't confusing. It also added some suspense as to the silver lining. So moving at the end, and your descriptions of tears and emotions were convincing and original.
