All bad things will eventually come to an end... right?

And, after months of world-wide lockdowns and quarantines, this news was music to everyone's ears.

The vaccine's developers - Pfizer and BioNTech - described the milestone as a "great day for science and humanity."

And, in December, the companies announced that they would be supplying the U.S with one-hundred million additional doses.

Spirits are high...

Because at least ninety-eight million people have been vaccinated here in the States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

This is an incredible milestone...


And finally, more and more families are being reunited after months of separation.

Which is what brings us to today's emotional story.

Evelyn Shaw spoke to CNN recently about how it had been a year since she was last able to share an embrace with her granddaughter, Ateret Frank.

"It's been a very dark year, listening to the news, reading the paper," she said, explaining how difficult this last year has been.

Evelyn was finally able to get her dose of the vaccine recently...

Meaning she was allowed to reunite with her daughter and granddaughter... but her doctor decided to tell her in the sweetest way possible.

People have been left touched by the doctor's kindness...

And, of course, by Evelyn's emotional reaction too.

Evelyn's daughter, Jessica, filmed the special moment.

"We were standing in my apartment, just hugging and hugging and crying and crying for the first time in a year, which was an out-of-body experience," Evelyn said of the moment.

"It was blissful, it was wonderful and it was something I am going to remember for the rest of my life."

But it was all thanks to her doctor that this special moment happened.

Evelyn's doctor wrote her a very special prescription that not only made her day but changed her entire outlook.

Evelyn thanked her doctor for writing the prescription...

And said it helped her with transitioning from the fear of COVID to "a better place of hope and possibilities and more hugs and kisses."

The prescription simply read:

"You are allowed to hug your granddaughter."

Simply amazing!

We're so happy for Evelyn and her family to finally be reunited!
