Where'd she get that red hair?

"Where'd she get that red hair?" I am asked this questions reliably every time I am out with my Little Bug. My answers vary:
"Oh it runs in both sides of our families."
"My dad and grandma are both red heads."
"He [the Hubs] had red hair when he was little."

David's favorite answer is:
"The mailman."

Sometimes I pretend I didn't hear the question and just proceed with my business.

This morning the answer resonated in my head as clear as crystal:

Why is this the logical answer? Well, a little secret - I spent time in "frivolous" prayer asking God to bless me with a red headed, curly haired daughter. Little Bug is evidence that God hears even the smallest of prayers and takes them quite seriously. So go ahead - ask me the question. I won't pretend not to hear. I will let you know that God is Almighty Creator of Heaven and Earth and red-headed daughters!

I am so slow at reading other's posts, I'm sorry! But, I just loved this one! Perfect answer!

We are quite amazed that our Sophia has blue eyes. My husband is Filipino, dark brown eyes, which we thought were dominant... ?
