May all our homes be our own private Bed and Breakfast!

Dear Friends,

One morning, I was working out on my treadmill, talking to Paddi on the phone, and reading your e-mail messages (yes, all at the same time!) when I came across this message. I start to read it out loud over the phone to Paddi:

Dear Flylady,

I wanted to let you know about the wonderful B&B my husband and I stayed at this Memorial Day weekend. The small but simply furnished kitchen was well stocked with delicious healthy snacks and meals. Homemade waffles with blackberries were served from a beautiful, clean kitchen. The living areas and bedrooms were furnished with fresh, plumped pillows, lovely matching sheets and down comforter, and scented candles everywhere. The bathroom — ah… bubble bath, lotions, and fresh, white towels. The library was stocked with books, magazines and yoga videos…

Paddi and I were both getting excited — where was this wonderful sounding bed and breakfast? We always keep our eyes peeled for pampering opportunities, especially ones we can share with our spouses. I continued to read:

… Best of all, my husband and I spent time together with no interruptions, chores, or traffic. Okay — you guessed it… thanks to you, this is my home. Thank you, thank you.

The tears started flowing, even Paddi was speechless. Thank YOU to the sender — this e-mail made my day!
