Hospitality (next day repost)

be prepared

be aware

be ready

be available

Doing whatever it takes

to be present.

Willing to provide

comfort and consolation.

welcoming

helpful

gentle

pleasant

Making it so that the stranger

feels at home and at ease.

Creating space for neighbor

to sense warmth and kindness.

hospitality

needs to be generous

wants to be kind

compels openness
