If you’re a regular reader, the title of this post may confuse you, since you know that we don’t have any kids. And therein may just lie the problem…
Soon after we moved into our house, we had invited some friends over who had several small children, and we quickly realized that we didn’t have anything to amuse the kids with! They ended up playing with CoCo the kitty’s toys…AND CoCo the kitty…who was NOT at all thrilled with the arrangement.
Not long after that, we had guests come and stay with us, and the two youngest didn’t have anything to do, either! This got my brain turning….so now…
We have a toy box!
We love to have people over to our home. It’s just one of those things, I guess. Our feeling is that God gave us this home, and so we feel led to share it with others! That may mean a simple dinner, or a weekend stay, or a place to crash in tough times, or a variety of other things. Regardless of the circumstances, our doors are always open!
So you can imagine that I like to be prepared for whatever may come, right? (If you have been with me here on the blog for ANY amount of time, you KNOW that’s the truth! Ha!) In lieu of that fact, I wanted to share a few thoughts about having house guests.
What I Do
Keep lots of linens on hand! I never want anyone to feel like they have to ration the amount of towels in the bathroom. If you need a towel for your hair, one for your body and one for…well…I can’t think of something else, so whatever you may need another one for, you will always find them in our guest bathroom. Extra pillows are good, in case yours aren’t the same as theirs, and they need some extra cushion comfort. And extra blankets are good, too, in case anyone gets cold!
