Fairy tale ending at GHS homecoming | KXAN.com


Once in a while, no matter how dark things seem, something happens to renew your hope and your faith in humanity. I hope everyone takes the time to read the link below. And think hard before condemning "today's kids". This is why I love our town. Enjoy this and make sure you have a box of kleenex handy!

If I ever move to Texas I think Georgetown is where I will go. What a wonderfully and moving story. WE need to see some of this kind of news on the major channels. A little glimpse of hope about our humanity is needed!!! Hugs Kathysue

Oh Kat Sweetie...
How beautiful this is. Oh my gosh. A double rainbow. One for each of them with the beauty that is yet to come into each of their lives. Promise of tomorrow for them.

Jared looked so handsome and Gracie looked just beautiful. I know this had to be the proudest moment for this beautiful town of Georgetown, Texas. How lucky you are to live there sweetie.

I went back and checked my links. Other bloggers have gone and visited this morning, so I am not sure what it is. But I hope you will be able to get through again.

Hi Kat! Thanks for sharing with us. This really is a heartwarming story. I truly believe there is so much more good in the world than all the bad that seems to be headlined everywhere...These are the stories that need to make the evening news and the newspaper headlines....not the tragic and sad and horrible trash that is constantly thrown at us. Thanks again!

Kat!

I wanted to drop by from my break because I miss you, and now I am crying! What a beautiful story!!! Oh, this is just the best EVER. I'm so proud of those young people. They are awesome and did such an awesome thing for those two kids. Yea! :-) :-) :-) I will be smiling all day.

I've missed you much, and this is one of the reasons. You always have the best things on your blog. Hope to see you again soon as I plan to be back to blogging in a week or so. Thanks so much for your prayers for Mr. M. He's on the mend, and I am setting about getting everything in order that took a back seat while he recuperated.

Love and hugs...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Thank you for sharing this.

Well done Kat! It's always good to get a transfusion of positive vibes from time to time to keep at bay the cynical thoughts that corrode one's soul.

Hey, stop by, because I tagged you in a very quick and easy meme! I need your creative mind!

Put on your Centusian hat and lets go!

I love seeing rainbows in Tucson during the monsoon season. It gives me hope that this year I won't get hit by lightening.
