hospitality is ...

My mum had guests over the other day.

She hadn't planned to invite anyone for lunch, but she'd made a pot of soup and baked some biscuits, and there were some odds and ends in the fridge, so she asked around after church until two couples she hadn't met before accepted her invitation.

"That's hospitality", said one of her guests. "Entertaining is when you go to a lot of fuss and bother.

"Hospitality is when you share what you have."
