When Friends Come to Call



Your cottage may be small and humble ~ like mine.




But when friends come to call, make them feel welcome and treat them
like honored guests.



Making our nests warm and welcoming is one of the ways we can
show our love to our families and friends.  Our homes don't need to be
grand ~ but must be filled with love!

I am happy to be visiting ~

Bentley ~ you are the best greeter.  You always make everyone
feel loved and welcome!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  1. Bentley is indeed the perfect greeter! Unless you're a chicken perhaps! Truer words were never spoken, my friend, as I read in your post.

  6. Susan ~ how true a mansion many of us may not have, but with a warm inviting home it wraps everyone in a great big hug and makes them want to come over again and again. Love everything you've done. Ofcourse, a greeting from Bentley would just be perfect ;-)
