(Need to start at the beginning? Day 1)

Our three concepts:

be welcoming – does your spouse feel at home?
stand with others in trouble – ’cause we all need that kind of friend
speak up – don’t let your silence speak for you

In thinking about being welcoming, as with most things, I go all practical.

Can my sweetie easily get to the door (from the outside and inside)? Is certain gear easily available (like an umbrella, boots, etc.)?

When he enters the home, what does he need emotionally? A hug? A few words? A comfortable place to sit and relax a moment?

I listen to what he says and does as he enters and leaves the home. Then I make it easier for him to want to be home.
