Good People and What I Know For Sure

A couple weekends ago, we went on vacation. A vacation we didn't even know that we desperately needed until we got there and it was possibly the happiest Tim and I have felt in maybe years. 

Life is crazy. It's full of a lot of good stuff, but a lot of stressful stuff too. It's been a particularly tense/upsetting/surreal past six months for Tim with work stress and counseling kids and families at the high school where he is assistant principal.  And well, you know money is always tight and we have a lot of busy kids and it's just a crazy life.  

So when Tim's coworker and his family let us stay in their cottage for free for the second year in a row it just got crazier. Because who does that? Who lets a larger-than-average family stay in their lake house for four days and use their boats and kayaks? For free?  Nice people that's who.  Nice, good people that see a guy who works his ass off to provide for his family and help kids in his high school and mentor kids and sponsor kids that are at boot camp because they have been kicked out of high school, that helps out coworkers and needed a break.  

It's so generous and kind we still can't believe it though.

But what I know for sure right now is that there are nice people in this world and their generosity is appreciated and we will be paying it forward in any way that we can.

Here's a little video of our time at their lake house in northern Michigan.
