Off to spend some time with daughter #2 at The Elms in Excelsior Springs, MO. http://www.elmshotelandspa.com/?WT.srch=1&WT.mc_id=PPC2P&DCSext.ppc_kw=the+elms+hotel+and+spa&ppc_ac=Brand&ppc_ag=Brand+Exact&ppc_mt=Exact&platform=t....
We've been hoping there for a number of years. It's not far, less than 2 hrs via a 2 lane highway dotted with tiny towns and bordered with lots of flat farm fields. Not a stunning landscape but a familiar one and notso bad in winter when there isn't do much farm machinery chugging up the road oh so slowly. It gives us time to talk which is great.
I'm very grateful that she wants to spend time with me and that we can still enjoy each other's company. We don't do much, a quick look at the shops downtown, some hot tub, sauna, facials, and lots of reading.
Today is an easy day to see the many blessings in my life and to appreciate them.
A big thank you to the Universe for this gift.
