Who’s Coming?

Gift…

I haven’t been outside today except to get the broom and mop off of the back deck…

I’ve dusted… cleaned carpet… run the vacuum … wiped and swiped…’til things are shining…

I’ve straightened… put things away… folded …’til everything is out of sight…

I’ve washed things… dried things …polished things…”til there’s a sparkle on everything…

I’ve chopped… mixed… stirred … cooked… baked and tasted …”til things seem just right…

I’ve taken a shower… washed my hair… put on a little make-up and dressed… “til I smell as sweet as a flower…

Can you guess what is happening???

Company is coming!… And everything has to be ready!…

To have company is special… and we were taught to give them your best… Whether that be with food … good manners… a clean bed  to sleep in … plans for entertainment if for a few days…

I think you get the picture!…

How do you prepare and greet company at your house?… Similar?… or do you have different traditions?…

Does it matter if it’s just for a few hours?… for a few days?… In town? .. or from another state?

Does it matter WHO the person/persons are?

Write a few words… I’d love to hear from you!
