The other day, a photo of a smiling young woman was posted on my local church congregation's closed-group Facebook page. I saw the photo, and immediately recognized my daughter.
|Photo: the Facebook photo that was posted of my smiling daughter|
My first thought was, "Oh, no! She never would have given permission to have her photo posted on Facebook!"
My daughter does not have a Facebook account, and I decided that rather than upset her, I would just not tell her that her photo was posted.
I changed my mind, though, when I checked my Facebook account later, and noticed the many "likes" and the sweet comments that the photo had prompted:
I love this girl!!!I showed my daughter the photo and, before she had time to be upset, I read her the comments.
Such a beautiful girl inside and out!!! Love her!
love this girl and love her smile!
Biggest heart ever and so sweet like sugar!
Her response: "Even though I didn't know he was going to put my photo on Facebook, I'm kind of glad he did."
I doubt that the people who took the time to comment realized just how much their unsolicited kind words meant to my daughter.
To those who posted the photo, clicked the button to like the photo, or wrote such nice comments, thank you!
(I received permission from my daughter, and from the photographer, before posting this account.)
What kindnesses have you noticed lately?
Thanks for all those who go about doing good in this world.
