When we arrived in the home, we were welcomed with wonderful smiles. I immediately introduced my friends who supported and donated as well, for the supplies needed in the home (toiletries, canned goods, clothing and school supplies).
I informed the kids that the theme of the party was Prince and Princesses, of course I asked my friends to wear pink shirts! We served spaghetti, BBQ, burger, cake and ice cream! In return, these kids surprised us with a wonderful performance (violins and guitar!), which left us in awe.
While watching them perform, I came to realize, as a blogger, we usually buy new things for our wardrobe. I purchase a bag which amounts to an expense of a family for the whole year (maybe not even close!). I am very fortunate. I have a loving family, a home, supportive friends and continuous income. The feeling after the event was and still is indescribable, I feel a sense of contentment that I promised myself while driving away, I will remember to go back and share my blessings, as these angels have touched my heart.
me and my friends wore tiaras, mine is the gold one of course!
