Thank you for your inquiries into my health--I am thankfully feeling much better today--just a little bit tired still, and I have a slight headache. I will be easing back into homemaking tasks today as much as I am able.
In a couple of weeks' time, we will have a full house (well, fuller than just our normal family, *smiles*) of some people from church, and some of my husband's family. They will come for the afternoon, and then for supper, and my husband's family will spend the night. My husband made all these plans on his own (smiles). I am not used to having much company around the house, or entertaining lots of people, as I grew up in a household that hardly had any guests. For the past several years, I was also not in a position to be able to cook meals for other people besides our family. I am also a very shy person, and I thrive on quiet and routine. Being around lots of people wipes me out.
But nevertheless, the guests are coming, and my husband wants me to practice hospitality, which of course I know is important. So I will prepare myself mentally as much as I can, and strive to plan meals that will feed a large crowd and pray for the Lord to help me. Maybe I am a bit silly, but this is just not something I am used to--especially with just having immigrated to a different country and having never met these people before (smiles).
The girls and I love to pick fresh flowers to decorate our home. I'm glad there are still flowers out this time of year!
