Yesterday, we were fortunate enough to provide lunch for another family on the road (yes, there are others!). The Boyinks [see right] stopped by our campground and had lunch with us. We served grilled chicken, cornbread, peas, and chips with homemade guacamole dip. We talked about how we decided to buy our fifth wheels and discussed some of our experiences on the road.
After the Boyinks left, Stephanie and I commented to each other how important and refreshing it is to spend time with others. It is easy to get caught up in maintaining life (soccer games, work schedules, school, hobbies, etc.) and run out of time for those around us.
Being on-the-road is teaching us to slow down and make room for people in a very real way.
Inviting a family or an individual over for dinner or coffee may feel like extra work. It may seem uncomfortable. Perhaps, you hesitate because the person or people you want to invite over are different from you (age, ethnicity, with/without kids, etc), but...the potential for friendship is unlimited.
How often do you invite people into your home for a meal or dessert? If you don't do it regularly, what prevents you from doing so?
