“Unconditional love is the greatest gift of all.”
~ Sylvia Massara
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."
“Surely,two of the most satisfying experiences in life must be those of being a grandchild or a grandparent.”
~Donald A. Norberg
P.S:Seen through the eyes of unconditional love and acceptance………. freckles and wrinkles only add to one’s beauty/ grace and need not be a cause for anxiety or embarrassment.
Unconditional love and acceptance allow life to flow with ease and joy……with great awareness and no judgement.
A wonderful way to choose to live!!!!!!!!
