Something sweet for your Saturday.....

....just a little something my friend, Diana sent to me...


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."

    I have lots of freckles as most red heads do and my girls have a few too. I have always told them freckles are kisses from God.
    I like the new pic too.
