My home away from home for one week out of the entire year is Daytona Beach. My destination Sea Club IV. I have met the greatest people from all over and yet one week out of the year we become family. We catch up on one another's parents and children and grandchildren. We eat together, play together and let one another have as much space as each needs. We help one another carry beach chairs, towels and shovels. We make sure to leave the gate unlocked (sorry Micheal) and are sure we wash the sand off to respect our home away from home.
Many of us got started coming here with our parents. Now we are bringing our children's children. It amazes me how fast the time has gone. Hence the reason for today's blog.
To those we missed this year, you were still there in our hearts. We mentioned your name often. We shared memories about you. We truly missed you. After all, we're family. So, until next year or until we meet again we are blessed to have spent some time with you.
