I have to admit, I was more than a bit nervous about Steve sitting, relaxing, turning off his computer, limited phone accessibility, and NO SCHEDULE. And I will admit, I am simply amazed after a week of sitting, relaxing, minimal computer and phones, and NO SCHEDULE WITH STEVE BY MY SIDE!!!!!
We have never been to an all inclusive resort. Ever. In fact, I’ve heard so many things about how wonderful they are. And we are here to tell you—they are ALL TRUE! This one, in particular, Secrets Puerto Los Cabos, was brand new and opened the end of December. I can honestly say, I have never been or stayed anywhere so absolutely beautiful as this resort. The climate was perfect. It was seriously perfect. Not humid, not hot. I can not count the number of times we commented on how perfect the weather was. Enough wind to cool you off as the sun got toasty, but not too windy that you could not enjoy every meal outside. That’s right…every meal we ate was outside. Did you realize that Steve?
Intentional time together we determined was one of our favorites. Not to mention the beauty of the resort, the delicious food, and the coffee cafe we found and frequented a lot.
And the desserts which included ice cream everywhere you went. Steve was a happy, happy boy.
Which translated into we better be working out in some form or another every.single. day. or we are gonna be sorry…
And learning new skills that may or may not come in handy back home…
and ordering an omelet each and every day for breakfast alongside some smoked salmon…
Steve’s omelet. My omelet. Which just happens to be WITHOUT eggs, which is the ONLY way to eat an omelet.
Yes we overindulged. And had too much fun doing so.
But at the end of the day (or week) we both came away with new friendships, strengthened relationships, and an even greater love for the people and ministry of Mary & Martha.
I can’t help but look forward to the excitement of what is to come. I can’t help but be so thankful for Steve who supports fully and sees the vision. I can’t wait to see who will join my team and sit with us next year on the incentive trip. And both Steve and I can’t wait to see these amazing people again in July at the National Conference. Although, not in Los Cabos…but KANSAS CITY!!!
Thankful. That’s what it is. Thankful for parents who ran our kiddos everywhere they needed to be, because otherwise we would never be able to do anything like this. Thankful for friends, family, and customers who support our Mary & Martha business and ministry—whom without, we would never had been given this opportunity. Thankful for my team–because they are spreading the love of Jesus into the homes of others and building the army of women Mary & Martha founders have been envisioning. Thankful for the leaders of Mary & Martha who spoil us, support us, and pray for us.
