During our exciting project in the summer of 2014, my brother Michael decided to visit us out in the countryside. In order to fittingly receive him, we decided to organize a ball in his honor and named it the Prince Ball.
It was a festive occasion that had everyone try to dress up with what we had available as our costumes. It was cute to see how everyone was eager to participate and find the right outfit.
There was a lot of dancing and amusement that day. It was for sure not the kind of welcome my brother had anticipated but I could tell he enjoyed himself. We dressed him up in a crown and a cape and he gave us a little Prince speech. We even had a play revolving around the return of the prince that we had him act in.
I was happy to see that Michael felt the love we showered him in and I was grateful to the whole group that we decided to do this little, unexpected party to show him that he was truly part of the family.
It was an act of loving kindness that warmed everyone’s heart and put a smile on everyone’s face.
