Thoughts on Being a Hostess

For many hospitality and being a good hostess comes naturally. But for some of us it's not our cup of tea.  Whether you are a natural hostess or a reluctant hostess these thoughts are perfectly timed for the season.

The Grace of a Stranger

We've all been there. The frazzled mama doing all she can to keep her children from a nuclear meltdown, quietly daring anyone to make a rude comment about her children. If you are like the rest of us, then you've been a witness to a meltdown and even probably thought if that child was mine, he wouldn't behave that way. You never know what is going on in a situation. That is where the Grace of a stranger comes into play.

Always Be a Child

When I think on the song "Always be a Child", I am reminded of my father and how I saw him as my hero, my friend, and my protector. I looked up to him. I realize that not everyone can say the same about their father. Some have been abused mentally and physically by their father and I cannot for one minute comprehend what life must be like for them. What they must have felt knowing that the abuse they suffered was at the hand of someone who should have been there for them protecting them and taking cared of them. The joy they should have known taken from them so that all they knew were tears, heartache, and cruelty. I can’t comprehend it at all.
