Where do you see Beauty?

With Valentines day fast approaching, I was just thinking about some of the place that I truly love to go to get away from it all. I just love, love, love, the mountains!

But I also love, love, love the coastal area. The water just makes me feel peaceful.

Not only do we see beauty in places, but in people. In ordinary people who just are full of love and compassion. Some people can make you feel better by just saying a kind word, or just one ever so small act of kindness can make a really bad day turn around.

Have you ever had a day like that? You're late for work, the kids are fighting, there's nothing that seems to be going right and then someone does something nice, and turns it all around.

Maybe you found a box of chocolates on your desk.

I am so lucky to have people like that in my life, I hope that I can be that person to someone else who needs it.

Where do you find beauty?


  1. I'm not sure about specific people. But I guess I would say that I have that in God. And most definitely feel that way when I go for a walk at the beach or a hike in the forest. Or even just sit and stare at the river here for awhile. Those are the beautiful things that definitely rejuvenate me when things get a little rough in my day.

  2. I find beauty in some very simple things.

    *Young children with manners.
    *Kind older men.
    *Older women giving away their treasures.
    *Random acts of kindness.
    *A mother's heart.
    *A friend who would do ANYTHING for you.
    *A homemade Valentine.
    *Gas logs.
    *Fresh limes.
    *Clean sheets.
    *The beach with family.
    *Witnessing the birth of a baby. (Especially a grandbaby).
    *A Heavenly Father who loves me. No. Matter. What.
