Point Betsie Lighthouse Beach in Frankfort, MI was one of the prettiest I’ve ever seen. It’s tucked away behind the lighthouse, and so quiet. The water was beautifully teal and there was much to look at and pic up from the sand. It’s perfect for a long day at the beach. I want to go back as soon as I can.
I wish I didn’t have to have this long absence from blogging! I am so happy to have this creative outlet no matter what’s going on around me. The last few weeks have been a little crazy around here. It started with Nick being sick, me having many doctor appointments (we’re both fine) and an unexpected death in the family. Everyone is still grieving and things are okay, but it’s just been a difficult time even after the funeral. I want this blog to be a positive place, but I want to be able to open up in things I’m learning.
After this death we’ve been with family for the last week a lot and it’s been really good. Not because of the context of why we’ve all been together, but it’s been good and encouraging. This has really opened my eyes to how blessed we are to have both families in our lives who support us and are close to us. I realize that not everyone has that and I think I’ve taken it for granted for a while. I don’t want life to ever take a turn and force me to think, “I wish I’d spent more time with them.” I’d rather take advantage of the time I have. You never know what each day brings which reminds me how intentional I must live each day. It’s unfortunate that it took something as powerful as death to remind me of all of this, but I feel hopeful for what’s to come. At the end of the day, the only thing that will matter is the people you love.
