  1. Antoinette, thank you so much for posting this, especially in light of recent events. I feel like when bad stuff happens the majority is so quick to talk about everything that’s wrong with humanity, instead of choosing to focus on what’s right. Thank you for helping us all keep things in perspective.

    Merry Christmas!

    Lauren

  2. THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL AND VERY INSPIRING, HIGHLIGHTING POSITIVITY SHOULD BE DONE MORE OFTEN IN OUR SOCIETY, RAHTER THAN “RATCHEDNESS” & NEGATIVITY! THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING THE LORD TO SHINE THROUGH WITH THIS POST. GRATITUDE

  3. This post just had me in tears! It’s so easy to lack compassion,be angry or bitter…it’s little moments like these that remind you of the good in people.

  4. Thank You Ladies SOOOO Much!!!! This truly has highlighted my month!!! To know that His spirit is steadily shining, undeniably through His people is truly up lifting. You ladies exemplify the meaning from Matthew’s book- “You are the Light of the World” with your curly selves!

  5. I cried so much, thank you for reminding me of what decent behaviour looks like. I had quite forgotten what being good person actually means.
