Beautiful People

Over the past week our country has take some hits from evil people. I've found I couldn't tear myself away from the TV as the authorities searched for the younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. What an amazing story as the cops worked tirelessly to capture him.

Today I wanted to take a look at some good things going on in our world.

When Dzhokhar was captured, the people in the neighborhood lined the streets and clapped for the police as they drove away. How awesome is that?

We can't all be that heroic, but if we open our eyes to the world around us we'll notice good things happening.

Last night we were out walking and Brooke, three years old, wanted to get wet from a sprinkler watering her front yard. The sun was going down, and it grew cool, but the thrill of getting hit by the cold water didn't dampen her enthusiasm.

So of course, she wanted to share the joy. She asked my husband, Sparky, to get wet with her. Before you know it, we'd all gotten wet except the baby. Brooke's joy was contagious.

Today a man left our store and thought he'd written a check for a dollar less than he owed us. He called back to check.

One of the employees at my store left a bag of food she'd paid for at the grocery. One of the grocery store clerk's recognized her and brought it to Drug Mart.

Keep your eyes open for the beautiful people in your world today.
