The idea of Elva and I both writing about our getaway to Kauai didn’t appeal to me at first. We have been to Kauai before, but this was different. We had a suite overlooking the ocean near Wailua at the Kauai Coast Resort. We have always enjoyed the ocean. I often say the waves rolling in on the beach and going back out to the sea are like a mental massage that takes our cares away. We sit on our balcony, feel the cool ocean breeze and watch the waves relentlessly wash up on the shore.
It is a place like this where we talk to each other the most and share our inner feelings. On this trip I finished “The Story” which is a condensation of the entire Bible. I also read Elva’s book, “Becoming Soul Mates” from cover to cover. I had read parts of it before. I am amazed at how close we’ve become over the last 60 years. I can hardly believe I was ever as young as I was when some of the things she wrote about happened. It has been good to refresh my memories. I am very glad Elva said yes to me when I proposed to her so long ago. Getaways are wonderful!!
