I just read a story about a little girl who was made fun of because she had freckles. She was holding hands with her Grandma and her Grandma heard the other child say "Oh , you have "ugly" freckles. The little girl was near tears , but the Grandma instead of reprimanding the other child , said "Oh , I look into your face and say oh , your freckles are one of the most beautiful sights to see." And then the Grandma said "what do see that is beautiful?" The little girl said ,"why ,Grandma , your wrinkles." This story reminded me of being with my own grand daughter , holding her hand and laughing. We are so fortunate to have the "innocence" of children around us. And we should be thankful for it.
