Today I am celebrating the beautiful gift of a Bed and Breakfast Weekend getaway.
It was given to us by friends. Thank you, Muellers, we had the very best time and are truly grateful.
~beautiful Traditions Inn. Columbus, NE
~a grandma that watches over our girls for us so we can go
~food! Almost too pretty to eat
~touches of the garden on our plate
~time to reflect, communicate and grow
~this book, A Lasting Promise, to help with that process.
~perfect weather, sunny and 77 degrees
~a drive that is not too short but not too long
~tasteful decor, an evident gift of the owner
~good reading material, left out for guests
~a dvd player for a late night movie
~beautiful gardens. What a view from our room!
~the sound of water features and fountains
~gazebos lit at night with twinkle lights
~sitting outside, quiet with my husband, each engrossed in a book
~the distant sound of cows and trains, drifting in through our open window
~a morning knock at the door, a breakfast cart left for us
~my giddy delight in the beauty of it
~drinking the entire pot of coffee by myself
~cinnamon roll french toast
~my ability to hold my tongue from scolding my husband’s order of breakfast diet coke:)
~a lazy, slow morning. No responsibilities.
~a chance to remember. A 9/11 sculpture in the town we are visiting on 9/11
~jagged metal, making it real. This gift of art.
~the blessing of freedom
~an opportunity to pray for those hurting this day
