Friday Finding Beauty..a beautiful heart and a child's smile

It's time for "Friday Finding Beauty" event on Claudia's blog Dipity Road. Today all the participating blogs can post whatever they like on their blog that touched them in some way and made them feel, see, or appreciate a moment of beauty in their lives.
I believe beauty is anything that makes you smile or warms your heart.
I believe that sometimes beauty isn't always something you see with your eyes, sometimes it's something you feel in your heart and can see the effects of in another's eyes.
My oldest Grandson is a beautiful child inside and out. He is very caring and considerate of others feeling, I saw his personal beauty really shine through 4 yrs ago at his Daddy's and Step mom's 5th Wedding/renew vows Anniversary. They did not have a nice wedding when they married, just DH and me, them and the Preacher, so they had her dream wedding on their 5th Anniversary.
MinMin's Sister had just adopted a little 11 year old girl from Foster care, now this child had been very abused and mistreated her whole little life and was very standoffish and shy. She was afraid of everyone. She stood in the corner until the Dancing started and she eased to the Dance floor, when she tried to dance by herself, her "new" Mom told her to go sit down, "you don't get in the way" She ducked her little head and walked back to the corner, my heart broke for her...My Keiferman was 16, not many 16 year old boys pay attention to things like this, but he did..when he saw her little sad face, he got up with no one telling him to...(I wondered where he was going) heart just swelled with pride and love when this tall 16 yr old walked over took her little hand and said "may I have this dance pretty lady". Well I can tell you, you could have lite up the whole room with the light from the smile on her face and her eyes just sparkled.,
Of course I grabbed my camera and took these pictures.
He danced several dances with her and she was so happy, In this last picture you can see the smile was still on her little face, And she stayed close to Keifer the rest of the night. I think that was the first time I saw the child smile the whole time they where here. She still texts him and they remain close friends. She lives in FL.


  1. Aw, such a sweet story. What a great grandson you have there.

    I hope ya'll all have a great weekend. Looks like were in for some terrific weather!

  2. Well this was a wonderful way to start my morning...precious, so sweet.

  3. Keiferman is a gentle man. How old is he now? That was sweet. How is the little girl?

  4. Praise the Lord when these kids show the Love and compassion and humility that we know is in them. What a fine gentleman!! And, what a great joy for that precious girl.

  5. Sandie, Keifer is now 20 and he is Rissa's older Brother. He is so good with her. I thank God everyday that Keifer's Mom let Ronnie have full custody of him when he was 11 and he has been there with Rissa all the time, that they were able to grow up together.
