How are you welcomed?

September 28, 2010

Our first topic is… hospitality.

This is more than coffee cake and a smile.  It is about making strangers feel comfortable and valued and welcomed.

Tell us:

Have you and your family been welcomed to a new place– a school, playgroup, therapy group?

What have others done to make you feel comfortable and at home?

Children with special needs can have a hard time encountering new places and faces– how do you prepare your child for these new surroundings?  How do you prepare those whom you are visiting?

What works… what remains a challenge?

Post your comments.  What you have to say may be a blessing for someone else.


Welcome to our new blog! Read this first.

This brand new blog is for parents and adult caregivers of children with special needs.

This blog is for sharing ideas, for offering reflections and for growing in understanding and faith.

Questions will be posted to spark discussion- the questions are based on the lesson of the month for groups using Rhythms of Grace, Year One, but anyone can join in the discussion!

There is a wealth of wisdom in our parents heads and hearts… let’s share it!

You need not post your name if you choose to remain anonymous… but please, post your ideas.

See the next post to get started.
