On Monday, I wrote about some sound advice from Shauna Niequist on bringing people into our version of “happy chaos.” Or as one of my favorite movie characters of all times, Cher Horowitz says, “At the end of the day, it was like, the more, the merrier!”
In response to Monday’s post, my Mom, who is SO wise, emailed me this in response:
Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay.
1 Peter 4:9
“It takes some time to learn, to try and fail and make a mess and try again. It takes even longer to get truly comfortable…But it’s a lovely process, with not a minute wasted. If you put in the time, the learning, the trying, the mess, and the failure, at the end you will have learned to feed yourself and the people you love, and that’s a skill for life–like tennis or piano but yummier and far less expensive.”
