Welcoming Each Other

A few days ago, I attended a gathering out of respect for a dear friend. I had not been in touch with most members of this family for quite some time. I wasn't sure what kind of response there would be regarding my visit. As it turned out, it was quite a wonderful, warm and loving experience to be welcomed as though I had never been absent. It made me realize how important it is for each of us to welcome one another every time we see each other regardless of the passage of time or changes in roles. So, make it a point to welcome 'old friends' and acquaintances. If you have not yet experienced the joy of being welcomed, you will...and if you never it anyway and know you've provided joy for someone else. That will be YOUR JOY.
