They just couldn't believe how lucky they were. She believed that she had just captured the picture-perfect moment. They were only playing dress-up, and her granddaughter spent almost an hour begging to put it on, so what was wrong with putting on a dress for some fun? But they certainly didn't expect the reaction that they got.

Amy Kavelaras was a native of Columbus, Ohio. Her favorite memories of being a child were spent at her grandma's for dinner every Sunday. They may not have had much, but they had each other. The days were filled with joy and laughter and one-course meals. They always made the most of what they had, but she never expected that the way she was brought up would have such an impact on her.

When Amy was a child her grandma never seemed to age. Ruth loved life so much that time couldn't keep her down. Ruth and her husband proved that love was what kept the soul, body, and mind young. During her childhood, Amy believed that her grandparents were a prince and princess. As she grew older, Amy realized that her grandparents couldn't avoid aging.

Amy took a job opportunity with JetBlue airlines. Ruth was encouraging to Amy, saying that it was an opportunity for her to see the world. Amy would soon see that is was the best decision she ever made, but Amy wanted to give back, as well. She spent the days she had off going to children's birthday parties dressed up as their favorite princess. If she was able to share a portion of the happiness her grandma had shown her, then she was doing good. It wouldn't be long before their happiness would take a turn.
