My husband is the director of a nonprofit and one of the donors to the nonprofit has gifted us with a week at his beach house for the past 5 summers. I can’t get over how incredibly awesome that has been for our family. This donor has such a generous heart. It means so much to us that he recognizes the “missionary type” work that my husband does and wants to provide some much needed rest and relaxation for our family.
In honor of our 5th year at the beach this month, I wanted to take stroll down memory lane and share some photos from the past 5 years. It is crazy to see how my little ones have grown. Enjoy the photos as I cry in the corner, wishing I could make time stand still.
Grace was just 9 months old the first time we took her to the beach.
I was pregnant with Noah this year, but we didn’t even know it yet!
Noah was just 4 months old the first time we took him with us.
Just for fun, here is a look at Grace’s carousel rides over the past 5 years.
It is fun to look back at these pictures and see how my family has grown, but the most impressive part of it all is that it was all possible because of someone’s generous giving. The couple who own this beach house has literally given my children summers at the beach and memories they will have forever.
Who could you offer an extra blessing to today? It doesn’t have to be as big as giving them a week at your vacation home. Perhaps it could be just a card in the mail or even a text message telling them that you appreciate what they do for your community.
No matter what the size is of your bank account, never doubt your ability to bless someone else.
Who will you bless today?
