Friends, do you want to make friends, and be a good friend?

I recently read this quote:

True hospitality pushes past what we can afford to give up, and makes deposits in accounts we can never lose. -Tony Kriz, Neighbors & Wise Men

I like to think of hospitality as investing.

Hospitality is investing

And investing as something that is eternal, and that we may never know the full outcome, or how it touches people’s lives.

Hospitality often revolves around our homes, but it can happen anywhere, as it really has to do with our hearts!

We wear it, bring it with us wherever we go—we live it!

It’s not really about all the details that go into being a hospitable person, but it’s more about who we become, and who people we’re involved with become, as a result.

If it were just the details (check-off list — the table, impressive food, “I did it” mentality) without the heart involved, then I’d say there’s not much life to that.

Investing in people

For me, hosting a dinner party is a way of investing—inviting people into our home, loving them and feeding them.

Set the table

Last week we had a window of beautiful weather in southern Oregon, so we were able to host an early spring dinner party in the great outdoors. Of course your can pull up a few outdoor heaters, and bundle up with blankets.
