There was a time when I was younger that taking the time out for the joy of hospitality happened often. I had a single child at home (not being able to have any further children) and I made it a regular occurrence to have many people "grace" our table particularly for this reason. I would even have people stay overnight who were from other regions. At one time I had 22 people over and a family of ten staying in "ground level"sleeping arrangements. They were busy years but I enjoyed the throng of people that made their way to our humble dwelling and what I learned along the way.
