This past weekend was the benefit that our friends put together to honor the firefighters that risk their lives to save my parents home...UMMM to say it was fun, is a huge understatement!! IT WAS A BLAST!!! My 3 girlfriends, along with their guys and some other friends put together this AMAZING event in under 2 weeks and really out did themselves! We were beyond blown away; from the décor, to the silent auction items, to the drinks and entertainment, it was a BEAUTIFUL site!! We got to simply enjoy the love and support around us, and think about the small things... which in the big picture are really the BIG things!!! Between our family, friends, & community support its been much easier getting through this shocking tragic event.. and these days we are sharing many more laughs within my fam then we are tears, and that's only thanks to YOU GUYS!
Jessica who was one of the hostess of the event, text me a few days before as donations were coming in and said "Your going to be in awe at all the people wanting to donate for your family"...my exact words were "oh man, I don't know how much more we can take.." haha, but really we never in million years thought we could or would ever need this kind of love from our small little ol' town of LaPorte... it's breathtaking, and leaves my whole family speechless and completely humbled!!
I want to take a minute and shout out all of the amazing donations that were given for this event, it brought tears to our eyes and made for one hell of a silent auction!!!
