In case you’re wondering, your house is not too small.

The stains on your carpets are not too awful.

The toys that creep back into the spaces you’ve just cleaned are not too unruly.

And the kids who put them there are not too wild to entertain guests.

Your dining room table is not too small.

Your chairs are not too few.

Your china is not too chipped.

And serving up food on paper or plastic is not too cheap.

Your heart is just the right size.

Your hospitality indelible.

Your laughter is welcome and your children’s joy infectious.

Your home is much more than four walls and the meals you serve satisfy far beyond food.

Just thought you should know.

You know?
