You are invited over and they don’t feel the need to tidy up before you come.
You get invited for dinner on a school night.
You get sent home with a stack of magazines to borrow.
And a container full of cookies.
And a ‘New-Old coat’ (which will be transformed! – so this is the before shot)
It is very precious to have people in your life who make you welcome in their home in the midst of their family goings-on. It is precious to see other people’s ‘big’ children making your little people feel special even though they probably have other things to do. It is precious to have a 14 year-old boy carry all your things to the car with a smile on his face and able to hold a conversation with you. This is the kind of family I hope we are growing into and certainly the kind of children I hope my children will be gracious enough to be when they are bigger.
We have a couple of families in our lives who treat us this way I am very,very grateful to them.
Today I made Ginger cakes for welcome home gifts.
Today I received these lovely napkins (I won another giveaway!! Can you believe it? Random.org loves me!) from the lovely Keilah I don’t have any fabric napkins and these are going to be so pretty at our table. Thanks Keilah!
Apart from a major tidy needed at our place, ugh there are so many more exciting things to do than tidy, I am having a quiet night perhaps full of borrowed magazines….
