We had a great time with the Blackwoods this past weekend!! We miss them already. You should have seen Jake scream like a little girl when Michael surprised him. Maybe John can get the video linked up so you all can see. It was great!!! Of course, a birthday with Jake and Michael would not be complete without a trip to Build-a-bear workshop, where they can feed their kindred spirits.

She was shocked by that but as time went on, before they landed, she asked "Are you serious? One million dollars for an evening?", and he said "Yes." So she pondered, thought about it; conversation ensued, and the time and the place was set.
About half an hour later he said "I do want to make a slight adjustment, I really don't have that kind of money. Would you consider the same proposal for ten dollars?" To which she looked with absolute anger at him and said "What do you think I am?"
He promptly replied, "We have already established that, we are only haggling over the price."
While most of us would puff out our chests and proudly proclaim that we would not consider the offer stated above. But what about a more subtle situation?
$10,000 to lie to a friend?
$5,000 to cheat on your taxes?
$1,000 to ignore your child for a day?
How about I give you $50 to skip your Bible reading for one day?
What would you do?
The sad truth is, I have done all of the above for free.
Please consider what you value most, and what it would take for you to compromise that value.
