What Kids Say To Grandma...

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

An elderly woman and her little grandson, whose face was sprinkled with bright freckles, spent the day at the zoo. Lots of children were waiting in line to get their cheeks 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 girl in the line said to the little fella. Embarrassed, the little boy dropped his head.

His grandmother knelt down next to him. "I love your freckles. When I was a little girl I always wanted freckles, she said, while tracing her finger across the child's cheek. "Freckles are beautiful!"

The boy looked up, "Really?"

"Of course," said the grandmother. "Why, just name me one thing that's prettier than freckles."

The little boy thought for a moment, peered intensely into his grandma's face, and softly whispered, "Wrinkles."

A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like.

"We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods."

The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!"

My granddaughter was visiting one day when she asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?"

I mentally polished my halo while I asked, "No, how are we alike?"

"You're both old," she said.

A grandmother was surprised by her 7 year old grandson one morning. He had made her coffee.

She drank what was the worst cup of coffee in her life. When she got to the bottom, there were three of those little green army men in the cup.

She said "Honey, what are these army men doing in my coffee?"

Her grandson said, "Grandma, it says on TV, "The best part of waking up is soldiers in your cup!"

Yes! It is all about how we see things!

    That was beautiful. Perfect answer to all of them! Love the little boy with the freckles. My Nana had lots of freckles on her arms and when I'd get bored on a car ride she's put her arm out and say, "Here, count my freckles." emoticon

    I got goose pumps! I know what you have been through with the cancer so the last statement you wrote means a lot to me.

Some experiences in life SEEM to lend a very specific way of looking at them. For example, when a person is told that they have a progressive, incurable illness (me) to Stage 4 lung cancer (you), that person may say there are NO choices left but you and i know that's NOT true!! We still have our thoughts, our view of ourselves, our view of the world NO MATTER what happens in life. emoticon THANKS for sharing such a beautiful blog to allow me to share with you today.
Love, Chelsea emoticon emoticon emoticon
