Kissed by the Sun
“Mama, what are these brown spots all over my skin?” my five year old daughter asked
one spring day.
‘Those are called freckles.” I told her.
‘Freckles?” she asked
“Yes, that’s right,” I told her.
“Where did they come from?” she asked
“They came from the sun.” I told her, “You have been kissed by the sun!”
“Kissed by the sun?” she questioned, and then walked away.
When August came around it was time for my daughter to attend kindergarten. Her
younger sister and I walked her to the school bus. The school bus arrived to pick her up
and take her to school. With tears streaming down my face we waved good -bye.
Later that day after she arrived home from school, she said to me, “Mama, there was a
boy at school and guess what?”
“What?” I asked.
“He must have had a giant kiss from the sun!” she exclaimed. “His skin had one big
brown spot all over it!”
