There are things that I'm good at, and there are things that I'm not. I don't explain why I'm not that great at math; I'm just not. So, when there's formulas to decipher and numbers to record, I (if I can) happily pass along the task, I do.
I'm sure there are things you're good at, and things that you aren't.
But did you know that we can all be good at having people over?
It's not about having a clean home or even feeling comfortable at others' eyes roving our corners for cobwebs, it's about loving people.
What if your home was actually your heart?
Obviously, there are dark corners with cobwebs, rooms with doors that will always be closed to non-family members.
We don't expect our hearts to be perfect before loving others, so why do we wait until our home is before inviting others over?
We've lived here for 3 months, and I'll tell you a little secret.
Our house isn't put together after moving at all. I still haven't painted the majority of our walls. We still haven't hung much on them. But, we have had more people over in the past 3 months than we had in all of last year. B and I decided to take advantage of the "we've just moved in" grace people give you, and hosted a birthday party, desserts, dinners, playdates, and more.
And do you know what?
It's been awesome. We basked in the presence of others before our house felt "ready." I've kind of enjoyed having less to dust and the room to think about my potential decor...
but most of all, I've enjoyed letting people in--and in my home, too.
