Yesterday I tried to find a meeting nearby. The Las Vegas central office has a whiz bang website, complete with a tutorial on how to use it. After about ten minutes I closed it and gave up on the idea of finding a meeting here. I will get to one after I get home. It is a shame when people think more about showing off their own technological skill than trying to serve the purpose of the person who came there looking for information.
After I got over the shocking opulence of my hotel room, I looked out the window to see just below me the steeple of the Catholic Cathedral. I walked over to mass in the middle of the festivities yesterday. That was very calming and a little island of sanity in this crazy, crazy place.
There is so much to look forward to today. I am so grateful for this son of mine. And his beautiful in-four-hours-to-be his wife. I am grateful for our lunch yesterday, strolling around Las Vegas - he and his to-be-wife, and his friend since youth, we found a wonderful little Korean restaurant and had a wonderful low-key time. Just sharing. Just sharing this life. And some wonderful food cooking on the grill before us.
Life is so very good. God has been so good to me.
So so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so grateful.....
