We so enjoy meeting all of our guests. When they check-in we don’t typically get to know them very well, but at breakfast we ask a few questions (if they seem open to questions) and before we know it we are having a great conversation.
Tonight we have a brother and a sister and the sisters daughter staying with us while they visit their other siblings/Aunts/Uncles in Des Moines. The visiting brother and sister grew up here and then had careers in other states. But they have been regular guests for almost all of the ten years we have been open. These are the folks we so enjoy visiting with. They are sort of like family but they pay us! 🙂 We have many regular guests. Over the years we have been there when a guests parent or relative has passed away. One of our long time guests mother passed away and Lauren greeted the guest at the door when she came back to Butler House on Grand the evening the mother left earth. Lauren stayed up and talked to her for a few hours. The guest was so thankful that she was staying with us. What she doesn’t know, and we need to tell her, is that we are so thankful that she has come into our lives.
We are thankful for all the folks that come into our lives. This past year has been challenging, to say the least, at Butler House on Grand. But we are so blessed to have wonderful and supportive family, friends, and guests. So, take a moment after you read this, and thank someone who has shown you a recent kindness.
