Goodness ~

You know it when you see it.
It's when someone pauses to let you out in traffic...
or maybe when someone let's you go ahead of them in line
at the grocery store because you only have three items
and they have big ol' buggy full.

Or maybe you are just a few cents short of your total at the checkout
and the person behind you offers the change to help you ~

I think that's why I love watching shows like Secret Millionaire.
I love seeing the sweet, regular ol' folks who help others
be recognized for their goodness.

This goodness is truly what is beautiful in this world.
There is so much ugly.
Too much fighting.
So much political yuck.
Too much hate and hurting.

Me? I vote for goodness.

Happy Thursday precious friends ~
hugs and love,

Dearest friend Dawn,
you have just the most loving way of expressing your thoughts, that`s also one of the reasons I love visiting you angel dear. Those examples you mentions are also for me the most wonderful goodness between people, and little loving "gifts" between folks every day, which makes my heart smile.
Thankyou for the girl and birdeggs image, I have just printed it out ,to send to Mathilde with her weekly little 5 mini sweets letter,:-) the mice one saved on :pictures for Mathilde.
Love and hugs to you for your own daily kindness to all of us.

Always sweetness here. Always love to see the images you'll share. That first one is so darling. I've used the Little Girl Waking in some of my journals before.

Kindness truly does help make this life so much sweeter!! And it doesn't have to cost a penny!!
Love your heart, Dawn!

Sweet Dawn, you are a woman after my own heart. I have a board on Pinterest that I called "I see the beauty all around me", because I have made the concious decision to do just that. I seek it in people, too, because it makes my heart and life happy. It's not that I have stuck my head in the sand, it's about what the bible says we should do "whatsoever is just and right, think on these things". It's absolutely ALL that makes sense. Thank you for your kindred, sweet spirit, Dawn

Out of all of the bloggers I most personify "goodness." It cannot be make so many days brighter for us all. On those days when I wish I were a nicer person...I think of your example.

June said...

I love your sweet attitude and look on life my sweet friend. Isn't it wonderful to go about our day and see that there is so much goodness in people still.
I LOVE all of the beautiful images you share with us Dawn. I always get so inspired when I come by to visit.

I hope you are enjoying your Summer as much as I am. I know you are creating all kinds of beauty and having a blast with your family.
much love from here...
