I have a confession. It’s not something I’m really proud of, so don’t tell anyone.
The word “hospitality” tends to make me break out in a cold sweat.
I blame Pinterest. Pinterest and I have a love/hate relationship. Most of the time, I love it. But then I encounter the recipes, cake decorations, and party throwing posts, and I realize that I’m really kind of failing this whole Christian housewife thing. I mean, I don’t host dinner parties, I’m practically allergic to streamers, and I tried to make one of my kids a cupcake solar system once. We just don’t talk about that party in our home. Ever. It’s been like six years and I’m not sure my youngest has really forgiven me for ruining the galaxy yet.

I’m sharing about my uneasy relationship with Christian hospitality over at Proverbial Homemaker today. (I love Tauna’s site.) I’d love to have you come join me!….
