thank you for coming


if i could have serenaded you like the von trapp children i would have. but a hearty written thank you for coming to my blog party last week will have to do.    it was so much fun to share some homemade goodness with y'all.  i have been teary eyed at the response to the love letters banner giveaway.  i really love hearing from you guys!  each and every comment and e-mail you send is special. i am a bit behind on replying to them right now - but i will catch up within the next week or so.

i strive to not just be your host when throwing a virtual party but to practice hospitality to every visitor on any day.  if you are coming here, i want you to feel welcome.  one blog i read states, "you may be a stranger, but you're not a stalker."  i so agree. 
"hospitality. . . means primarily the creation of a free space where the stranger can enter and become a friend instead of an enemy. Hospitality is not to change people, but to offer them space where change can take place."

don't you love that?  bienvenue strangers!  will you become our friends?

i know our family and friends come here to stay in touch, but many others come to find solidarity.  as i seek it in your spaces.

so thank you.  thank you for reading.  thank you for commmenting.  thank you for being part of this space.
