Valued Trait

Today’s prompt on WordPress was:
What’s the trait you value most about yourself?

Each of us is given special gifts.
The trick is to recognize yours.
When you find it, then
make it your favorite trait.

And use it to the fullest!

This scripture is one of my favorites…
and it reveals a trait I cherish:

Hebrews 13:2

“Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers,
for by this some have entertained angels
without knowing it.”

My special gift is hospitality.
I love having family and friends
come to spend time with us.
Here is our dear 1980-81 AFS son,
Christian Zufferey (ZuZu), from Switzerland.
No, he’s no stranger to us!!

(Our DeAna married his first cousin!!
What a love story that is!)

This week DeAna, and her hubby, Andre’
surprised us by arriving with ZuZu
and his wife, Celia, for a four day stay.
Here they are this morning… leaving us (boo-hoo!)

But, we were blessed to have them
come and spend those days
(just not nearly long enough) –
and to have Chef Andre’ prepare great meals!

How wonderful it was also
to have our grandson, Mike,
and his wife, Tania, with us for a week
this month. They were so helpful!!

Now this hospitality business
would have a full opportunity
to be put into practice IF our son
Ty & his wife, Monika, would come!

The good news is that Peter,
one of Bob’s wrestling students
from back in the 1970’s in CA,
will be joining us in October for awhile.

Why don’t you consider
Letting me use my favorite trait,
On you one of these days?

What’s your special gift – your favorite trait?

Love to you,

  1. That’s a head scratcher. Not sure what my favorite trait is. I’m wondering if I have any traits to begin with. Hopefully I’ll figure it out by the time I get there.

  2. You also have a talent for being a guest XX

    The Beekman Resort in Ennis Montana is a lovely B&B with gracious hosts – Jan and Bob Beekman. I highly recommend this location which not only offers amazing comfort and hospitality, but also breathtaking views of colorful Montana skies and white tipped mountains. The home is adjacent to a lovely golf course and often entertained by antelope and other critters. 😊
    I look forward to my next visit! I hope it’s not too many days until I can make that happen. Miss you, MomBee!!

    • I hope it can happen sooner than later. Will you have any days off in November? We’d love to have you come spend a week with us.

        I should’ve planned something for a November! I certainly have plenty of vacation time available but I am dogsitting for Kayla and Gordon when they go on their wedding gift trip to Disney World for a week in November and I already took off the first week of December to go to Disney world with Katy. But I will find a way and good time to visit you soon! I miss you! 😘😘😘
