I've been busy since we returned from our visit with Little Man and his folks and there are still things I want to post about our visit. But, one of the things I most want to say is how very much I appreciate a loving welcome from my daughter and son-in-law. And, to say that I notice and appreciate her attention to so many sweet little details. Flowers nestled throughout the house. My favorite candy beside the bed. The most soft and lucious bedding to rest our heads upon.
Warmth and welcome... shelves emptied in the bathroom so that we could make ourselves at home. Joy was indeed scattered about everywhere we looked... just for us.
Easter prizes, which Pop Pop enjoyed very much!! All the details... all the thoughtfulness... all the love. In our family, the definition of hospitality could be expanded to include an expression or act of love. It is an act of service, an attention to needs, a work of caring. Amanda makes it an art.
But, the greatest piece of hospitality is the loving welcome from this part of our family. And, while I want my daughter to know that I deeply appreciate all her work and her attention to our needs, I most want her to know that her love is all I ever really need. The rest is icing on the cake! She and Jerry always make us feel special and loved. I could not ask for more. Thank you, my children. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
