Young Boy And His Grandma

While we will have many different relationships in our lives, one of the closest will always be between a grandmother and her grandchild. It seems that there’s just a special bond that flows between the two, which is apparent in so many different ways. When you really just stop and think about it, your grandma is like a mother, but she is just the soft and wiser side in many cases. Not saying that moms aren’t wise and soft in their own right, it’s just that grandmas have a unique vibe. That’s why grandmas often get to see that special something in their grandchildren that makes us smile from the heart.

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”
