WHAT'S PRETTIER THAN FRECKLES?


{This is a picture of my second daughter, Kathleen Susanne (Kathy Sue) age 5}

A grandmother and a little girl whose face was sprinkled with freckles, spent the day at the zoo. The children were waiting in line to get their faces painted by a local artist who was decorating them with tiger paws.

"You've got so many freckles, there's no place to paint." A boy in the line remarked. Embarassed, the little girl dropped her head. Her grandmother knelt down next to her. "I love your freckles," she said. "Not me," the little girl replied.

"Well, when I was a young girl I always wanted freckles, "the grandmother said, tracing her finger across the child's cheek. "Freckles are beautiful."
The girl looked up, "Really?"
"Of course," said the grandmother. "Why you just name one thing prettier than freckles."

The little girl peered into the old woman's smiling face.
"Wrinkles." she answered softly.
