The magic of the season is all around us. Can you feel it?

 

My

upset

Granddaughter’s

Tears for freckles

Her face scrubbed red raw

What can I say to her?

A sign of beauty, not that

I didn’t believe it years ago

I needed to think of something quick

I told her they were the shadows of stars…

  1. The shadows of stars––I like that, Anita. Very young children just want to be like everyone else. They want to fit in and hate anything that’s different or unique about themselves. She’ll grow to love her freckles, especially with the lovely encouragement you give her. 😀 xo
