Friends, I know I’ve written a lot about the seasons of life. We’ve all lived a real – life of love, loss, regret, and celebration.

And I would say most of us have gone through seasons of transitions, sadness, and very hard times.

Maybe you’re just coming up for air from a painful experience, and you’re thinking about hosting again.

Don’t rush it , … feel it, live it. And when you’re at a place where you’re ready to share with others, the table can be a sweet place to do this.

How to grill apple slices

Heat the grill on high. Cut the apples into 1/2-inch rounds. Coat with oil to get grill marks (so pretty!)

Lightly sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg, grilling for about 2 minutes.

Top the slices, while warm, with the recipe ingredients below. SO GOOD!

Make a recipe a conversation starter

Whether an appetizer or a dessert, this recipe is a conversation starter!

Don’t wait until you’re happy to host. Food is the catalyst that brings us together much of the time.

Maybe you’re saying, but I’m just not happy. I don’t want to host until I’m happy again.

We’ve been there. Paul and I lost 3 parents in 5 years, and it was a tough few years early on in our marriage. Those years were a mixed bag of love, joy, sadness, and loss. They were painful years.

But I’m reminded of how happiness—true happiness—is an inner quality. I loaned a book to my friend, Dez, and she returned it with a beautiful quote:

“True happiness is to understand our duties toward God and man; to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence on the future; not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears, but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is abundantly sufficient.” –Seneca

If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give – pleasure, possessions, power – but lack peace of mind, and you’re constantly anxious, you can never be happy.

SO GOOD Grilled Apple Pistachio Pomegranate Brie Bites

Hospitality is medicine for the soul

Start where you are today, friends, and enjoy the present.

When we’re done hosting a dinner, I always feel so happy. My soul feels happy.

People don’t realize it, but it’s actually medicine for the soul. You give out, extend yourself greatly (hosting is no easy task), and it pays off, especially if there is transparency around the table.

Friends, I feel it’s time for more transparency, more openness, extending our tables with love and grace!
