Last summer my brother and his family hosted a breast cancer fundraiser in their yard—”FraserFest” was an outdoor concert with bands and food and fun under the stars.
But before the stars actually shone, there was rain—crazy heavy rain, strong winds, and even a tornado sighting. To wait out the weather, the adults huddled under the porch while the kids hung out in the basement.
When I came downstairs to see what they were doing, I found my daughter encircled by a group of the kindest kids you’ve ever met.
Only an hour earlier Avery had been in tears—she couldn’t understand why she couldn’t perform on the stage with the band. “Puh-lease!” she begged. “I want to sing on the stage.”
Now, thanks to these big hearted kids, it was her moment and she basked in the glow of the spotlight.
Thanks kids. You made this kid’s heart swell. 🙂
