This week I’ve heard two heart warming stories.
Friends of ours had a grown up daughter join us at our recent club muster. When our friends’ family was young they took the kids out of school for a year and travelled Australia in the caravan. The trip was so good that when this particular daughter accepted her boyfriend’s proposal it was on the proviso that they too would buy a caravan and take their planned family around Australia.
The daughter and her husband now have four children and a brand new caravan with lots of bunk beds is under construction.
And the second story, a neighbour popped in after a family trip to Echuca to share the news that her son had just bought a ski boat because he wants the kids to have the same childhood that he and his sister had, camping and skiing on the Murray River.
What a wonderful compliment to his Mum.
