“Good hospital-ity is make your home a hospital.
The idea is that friends and family and the wounded and weary people come to your home and leave helped and refreshed.
And yet too often hospitality is a nerve-recking experience for host and guest alike.
Instead of setting our guests at ease, we set them on edge by telling them how bad the food will be, and what a mess the house is, and how sorry we are for the kids’ behaviour. We get worked up and crazy busy in all the wrong ways because we are more concerned about LOOKING good than with DOING good.”
