Seeing through Grandma's eyes

Saturday, August 2, 2008

The author is unknown for the following bit of wisdom, which shows the insightfulness of children:

Two small boys were discussing eye glasses. Wouldn't you hate to wear glasses?" one asked.

"No," answered the other, "not if I could have the kind my grandma wears! My mother says she can always see when folks are tired or discouraged or sad. She sees when somebody is in need and she can always recognize when you have something on your mind that you need to talk over. But best of all she can always see something GOOD in everybody!"

The little fellow continued: "I asked my grandma one day how it was that she could see that way. She said it was because of the way she's learned to look at things since she's gotten older. So I'm sure it must be those glasses of hers."

Wouldn't it be wonderful if all of us could see each other through Grandma's glasses!
