through the lens of my eyes

there was one girl who asked her mother a question. the girl asked, "mom, why do i have two eyes? why not three or four?"

the mother stunned for awhile but wisely answering her daughter's question. "my dear," she started, "God created eyes for you to see. why did He created two eyes?"

"yes, mommy, why did He created two eyes for you and me?" asked the girl again.

"because He wants you to see one from the left and one from the right, so you would be able to know what is right and what is wrong, honey," replied the mother.

the girl being a girl closes one of her eyes and said, "i can see you through my right eye, mommy!" and subsequently she closed her right eye, too, "and... through my left eye also!" she giggled.

"i can see you through both eyes, mommy... !" she ran to the open arm of her mom waiting for a hug.

her mom gave her a soft kiss on her cheek, "with your eyes, you can see mommy anytime you want, honey..."

and the girl smiled.
