Chocolate Tasting #1

We are having a chocolate tasting in downtown Franklin Sunday night. Since Brock's parents left today and some of our other friends are going to be out of town Sunday as well, we decided to have one at our house last night. It was so fun!

Brock's parents got to experience a chocolate tasting. Plus, they got to meet some of our friends. They said that they enjoyed watching us all interact and how different we are. We do have a very interesting group!

Brock began to talk about the purpose for the evening. We are trying to help some friends whose baby has had some medical problems. (The guy is in the group Downhere which is an excellent band.) The bills are stacking up and we are trying to relieve some of that pressure. Before Brock even finished talking about it, the youngest person in the group (2 year old Anna) came up to Brock and said, "Here you go, Brock!" With this, she handed him a $50 monopoly money bill that she had in her little purse. Wow! This really encouraged our group to give!!! Out of the mouth of babes.

that is so sweet. love that. brought tears to my eyes. kids are so very untouched by all the crap of the world still...no skepticism or hard-heartedness. they hear something like that and just do the right thing without hesitation. thanks for sharing.

Anna is already three! How precious that must have been. It is great that you are helping this young couple with their bills for their baby.
