Being humbled

Tonight, while I was helping my second daughter get ready, she said to me, "You look like a grandma to me." When I asked her why she thought that, she replied, "You are getting gray hair."
I sputtered, "But I only have four gray hairs at most (I've counted them). Do you think Daddy looks like a grandpa?"
"Yes," she replied and went into her room to pick up, leaving me to tend to my wounded pride and self esteem. Of course, I had to tell my DH when he returned home from band practice.

I think the Lord uses our children to humble us the most, in so many ways. It is good for us too :-).

"Gray hair is a crown of splendor;
it is attained by a righteous life."
Proverbs 16:31
