Definition[s] of sweet on the Web:
angelic: having a sweet nature befitting an angel or cherub; "an angelic smile"; "a cherubic face"; "looking so seraphic when he slept"; "a sweet disposition"

Can't get much sweeter than the innocence of children. This is my oldest grandson [the one with Down Syndrome - what physicians say is "He's a high functioning DS"]. Taken when he was just a young'un, a year after his open heart surgery. He is now 18 and just graduated from High School. The "USMC" is a gift from his uncle [our son] who was in the Marine Corps at the time.

    It's wonderful that he has accomplished so much. DS children are so loving and giving. They have a lot to teach us about unconditional love. May God give him many more years.
    Have yourself a great holiday weekend.
