Speechless Sunday-There's No Mistaking The Depth Of A Child's Love

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Alliance 0754296

While my 8 year old granddaughter was at a sleepover at her aunt's house on Friday night with her cousins the girls decided to paint their toenails.  She stayed at our house last night and while getting ready for bed was so excited to show me what she had painted on her toenail.  "Grammy, look at my big toenail.  I painted an American Flag on it to remind me of my Daddy."  There's no mistaking the depth of a child's love.  She left me speechless.

Donna, if my toe nails were those colors it would be because I dropped something on my foot.

LOL at Ed's comment. I used to paint my fingers multiple colors all the way through high school... just had to be unique! But I never had such a good reason as this one!

George - She never ceases to amaze me.

Shirley - I can't put into words how touching it was to me and how proud she was of herself.

Lisa - I used to paint my nails too but nothing as unique or creative as this.

Adam - Thanks...it was a very special moment for both of us.

Hi Donna!  Well, I was going to say, "Now THAT'S an all-American girl!"  What great 'artwork' from the heart!  I know having the photo to share with her daddy will definitely be cherished!

Donna.. You might want to give her the idea of painting every other toe blue and then the other pink.. that looks cool too.  How do I know this?  I did it when I was her age. 

I'd love to do it again, if I could only reach my toes.  LOL.
