Really, felllowship is better with pie...

Tonight there will be a gathering of my AA group at my house. There are crock pots a bubbling and pies cooling. There is a cooler on the deck with varieties of soda pop and ice. There are bottles of water in the fridge (something I won't normally buy because of the gross waste of plastic) and all manner of things that aren't usually in my house. It is happy. And it smells good.

I am now hoping to take a nap. I am not well at all. I was in bed all day yesterday. I could have been in bed all day today if not for this commitment. But I know if I catch a nap and get some down time I will be good to go tonight.

Once the first guest graces my door I will be a happy girl.

I love, love, love to see my friends sitting around my house.

Last night I called one of them to see if I could borrow a cooler. In our conversation I told him I was sick but was sure I could still bang out a couple of pies and a good meal - and added that it is truly a labor of love for me. He said he knew it was, and that I was a "good hostess." That blew me away. I don't think of myself as a good hostess, just a good cook. I am not good at all the things my mother wanted me to know, but we sure do have fun at my house. So, guess that is good.

I pray I will feel better by 5 p.m. If you would add a prayer, I am sure that wouldn't hurt... thanks.

If you and your guests have fun, then you must be a good hostess.
Duh.

Yummm! Any pie left? Ditto on what dAAve says. You seem to have the hostess gene. I would definitely come to your house for meetings if I lived within a 50 mile radius! Hope you're feeling better now. ((HUGS)) xo, PJ
