The other morning, my baby, Temi (11 years old) took one long hard look at me and said, “Mom, either you have sleep marks on your face, or you’re getting eagle’s legs or hawk’s claws or whatever that stuff is called.” “What stuff?” I asked, completely bewildered and clueless as to what she was talking about. “You know,” she said, “the stuff that old people get around their eyes.” “What – crow’s feet?” I asked. “Yeah, that’s the one!”

    …and then they wonder why we get cranky, or go gray! Hah! she got you good, didn’t she? Reminds me of the time my daughter (then 7 ) asked me “why do you put all that cream on your face mommy?” so I told her it was to keep me from getting wrinkles like grandma. She innocently and matter of factly replied “well it’s not working!”-OUCH again!. I prefer to think of them as ‘laugh lines’ from a life well lived-Prov 15:13a
