This moment was when Lou, Lou and her best friend Pixie (Birdie's daughter) brought me "flowers" because they thought they were beautiful and I would love them because they are my favorite color.
Looking at those little "proof of love" moments makes the mundane, routine things in life tolerable. And if we can, by doing those routine things, give someone else a "proof of love" moment (like clean underwear put away in their drawer), then it is all worth it! Let's remind ourselves that God is Love and when we do things out of love, it is pleasing to Him and it makes the one you are serving feel valued and special.

I had the freedom to do whatever I wanted to do. I could go jogging...
And soak in luxurious bath...
or take a luxurious bath, read and drink coffee. And enjoy the fact that I had no little ones barging in to tattle on the other ones. Ahh, sweet peace.
Back at the hotel we stayed in a Concierge suite. These were some of the team of concierges that took care of us! They cracked me up!!!
Even the elevator was fancy!
They had lots of stores in our hotel, as well. Doc got caught in a staring contest with this mannequin. She won.
He also got to bet on his precious KU Jayhawks football team.
And at the end of our meal, our waitress (Kristin, who was FABULOUS) made sure we got a Pumpkin Dessert Drink. YUMMMMOOOOO.
We also got to hang by the pool. Ahh, warm sunshine.
I talked Doc into reading "The Shack" which he fell in love with just as much as I did. BTW, the lady behind him on the left side is also reading it! She loved it, too. READ IT PEOPLE. READ IT.
Also, just a note. Doc does indeed have a swim suit on. It was not a nude pool. Even though, I would have enjoyed the view, I don't think you will ever in all his days see that man anywhere that requires one to sit around without any clothes. Just so you know. Isn't he handsome. I'm a blessed woman!
Any time we go to Vegas, we always go to the Bellagio and watch the fountains. If you've never done it, I highly recommend it. It is better than most of the shows and totally free.
The same hotel also has a conservatory inside that changes seasonally. It was so beautiful. It had an archway made of pumpkins and other natural fallish things. It also had a tree and Venus flytraps that had motors that made them do different things and a few sculptural trees that were fountains.
to be looking at this man while I do it. I guess he brings out the inner seductress in me! LOL
