When possible, I select animals with a smattering of freckles on them.
Now I do not have any freckles. I have two places on my lower arms where I have a brown or tan cover. I looks a bit like an oval that appears to be a billion freckles confined to two areas, that in the winter is more noticeable, otherwise, I am freckle free.
Now to the seven siblings that are blood siblings, I thought I would share their total cuteness:
Oldest sister-look at those freckles...
Oldest brother-again look at all those cute freckles
Second oldest brother-yep still a smattering of freckles...
Second oldest sister~still loaded with cuteness
Then to the youngest brother~still a tad older than me
Not so many freckles...pretty much none.
By me ZERO cute freckles...
Did my mom run out of freckles?
No. As you can see, she even had freckles on her lips.
She told me when I was a little girl that she had freckles everywhere!
I know I saw freckles on her palms and the bottom of her feet.
BUT two of us were left out on this awesomeness.
I did not post a photo of my little sister and her freckles. She is
one of the lucky ones too, but I couldn't find a close up to reveal this.
I miss my mom and all her freckles. Not many people are freckled as much
as my mom was, but when I see them, I tell them how very much I love freckles
and about mom.
Now as a disclaimer, I don't think mom liked her freckles very much.
I don't recall many times she said anything about them, it is something I sensed.
She didn't have any problem letting me tire out trying to play 'connect the dots'
and never shied away from being a beautiful freckled mom, so with me at least
freckles were FANTASTIC!
It is my silly little thing to imagine a life freckled...like the rest of the family.
Oh well, someone had to have the blue eyes. I guess that will be my thing!
