Last night I saw a post liked by one of my cousins (and I have like 24) and the story was just so heart-warming that I had to share…

After more than 10 years of service a gardener and housekeeper got a surprise from their employers. They would be taking a flight to see the ocean – both a first in their lives.

I looked through all the photos and videos and had to hold back a tear. It was so heart-warming to see these people looking out over the clouds with smiling faces. (Do you remeber the first time you flew?) The best however was to see them on the beach… it was pure joy. They played in the small surf close to the beach and loaded up on bottles of sea water and picked up shells to take back home. Apparently one of the two asked if the sea moved like that by itself (“loop die see so vanself”) – that just got me 6-0.

PS. I have made contact and will be posting a story about the employers and the lucky duo.
