Young and Old

Last year, I showed my high school picture to my 7 year old granddaughter, Logan.  Of course she noticed my hair.  “Yes,”  I told her.  “I had hair then, and smooth skin, and I was strong and smart.  Lost them all.  But there is one thing I have now that is much better.  Do you know what it is?”

“No”

“You. I didn’t have you then, and you’re worth more than all of those.  It was a good trade and I’m happy with it.”

She smiled, looked down and said softly, “I knew you were going to say that.”
