WELCOME TO MY BLOG!
With the best intentions, many of us think about entertaining, but never get around to it. Usually this happens because we don’t have enough time, we’re disorganized or our spouse isn’t interested in hosting a party, or even a small dinner!
For many this blessing of gracious living for both the host and her guests never takes place because of fear, fear of failure, unable to cook, unwilling to share their lives with others, fear of deepening friendships, they are intimidated and think the meal has to be perfect, or they don’t have the lifestyle that says, “welcome.”
I believe in connection. I believe that Americans need to lower the expectations of perfection and open their homes to heart-warming dinners and in doing so, open their lives to LOVE!
Today I made pear bread. I plan to send it in the mail, along with pear butter (or jam), to a friend as a thank you. It’s great to send home-made thank-yous! And it’s my Mom’s pear butter recipe, so what could be more special?
