I had a conversation with a friend the other day about hospitality. It sort of went like this. We were in a group, and I brought up that hospitality doesn’t just have to happen in your home, it can be with you any where you go! I didn’t realize the impact this had on my friend, who at times has felt bad about her lack of hospitality. Oh, don’t get me wrong, she is one of the most hospitable people that we know, and we’ve had many meals and holidays in her home. But we all go through seasons, and times where it’s not as easy as others, or it just looks differently for each person.

Hospitality is …

Hospitality for me has been hosting dinners, parties, showers, kid sport parties—you name it—in our home. But for others it may be meeting in a restaurant, bringing food to a potluck or party, bringing people together in different ways, away from home.

For me, it’s also about bringing meal to a family, and doing hospitable things for others!

She was relieved to hear me say that it doesn’t look the same for each person! We live in such a busy world, you really have to find what fits your schedule. The bottom line? I do believe that we are all called to be hospitable, in some way, shape, or style.

Now with our move happening this month, I won’t be having huge parties, not for a long while. I can count on one hand the number of people that we know in the new community we are moving to. It will be adventurous, but also a challenge, to meet people and to feel comfortable inviting them in.

I’ll be feeling what a lot of you have experienced. But I’m happy to be a part of this new adventure. I really am.

New Potato Chicken Soup

New potatoes remind me of my mom’s cooking. She’d always make new potatoes with cream and peas. It was one of her favorite dishes that I could not get enough of.

You can cook this on high in your slow cooker and it will be done in about 3 hours, or on low for 4-5 hours. The potatoes cook rather quickly when they are small.

Then you add the chicken and the peas and cream and fresh herbs.

Oh, it’s so delightful.It reminds me of health, nourishment, friendship, and spring! I just made it for my friend, who has been very ill for over 6 months. I was so happy to bring it up to her and her husband this week–and enjoy a much needed long visit with dear friends. Another way to be hospitable!
