If you aren’t familiar with Five Minute Friday, here are the rules. Jump in and have some fun with us.
This week’s word is Welcome
Welcome. It’s so homey. The word that is. Houses used to have doormats that said “Welcome” on them. (Maybe some still do, but country living doesn’t lend itself to cute welcome mats.)
I love welcoming people into my home. I LOVE to entertain. Not just me, but my entire family. All of us get excited when company is coming.
10 days ago we welcomed 2015.
I am so thankful.
A new start.
A new beginning.
So I welcome 2015 with a renewed hope.
And the promise of Spring because I do not LIKE winter and snow and ice. Sunshine and flowers and trees with their branches all stretched out in their glory, covered with green. More alive. An open door seems much more welcoming to me than a closed door, even with a fire in the wood stove.
Green branches, blooming flowers and fresh produce seems more welcoming than bare branches, empty gardens, and cold.
