There’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, and that is I’m not a perfect housekeeper!

My house is often messy and cluttery, especially when I have a lot going on. I can only handle it for so long, and then I get in and clean and declutter. But with unannounced company, my the state of my house has actually hurt my pride.

I think we’ve all struggled with this “perfectionism” issue at different times.

Hospitality scenerios:

When last minute guests have arrived, or we’ve extended a spontaneous invite, sometimes I just don’t feel “ready.”

I’ve grown now over the years, with a different attitude, challenging myself to put people before perfection. This has actually humbled me.

I’ve learned to overlook a few things that weren’t “perfect” and tell myself “it doesn’t matter.” And then move on and enjoy the people in my home.

What have I learned?

Ready or not, invite people in!

Happy Spring, Friends!
