One day, a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the
dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother
had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast to her
The little girl looked at her mother and inquisitively asked,
"Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?"
Her mother replied, "Well, every time you do something wrong and
make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white."
The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and
then asked, "Momma, how come all of grandma's hairs are white?"
