Last night I hosted a party at my house. It was a busy day, and I ended up in bed super late, but so rewarding. Leading up to a party I am always so nervous. I don't do well in a crowd. It just isn't where I feel comfortable.
Before the party started the house was clean, the candles were lite, the chairs set up, and all the food was made. Things were ready but I was a mess.
Then my friends walked in the door and I was reminded the people came because we are friends, not out of obligation or coercion. People came and people enjoyed.
So today might be a little on the tired side but there is joy today. Success in the hosting and contentment in our Fairbanks community. Plus, after a party the house is always clean. Love that!
