Home

A door
Leading
Welcoming you to our home
Take off your shoes
Let me take your coat
Your smile brightens our walls

The smell coming from the kitchen
Dances on the air
Can you smell the happy
The warm thoughts
That pour from that room
The gift of time
The heart of our home
Come gather around the island
I'll pour you a glass of wine
We will laugh together
Talk of our yesterdays
Anticipate
Dream about our tomorrows
Have some appetizers
Not too much
A feast awaits

The table is set
Plates glasses carefully set
Candles spreading soft light
Subtle jazz 
Come enjoy 
Let us break bread
Pass the gravy
Share
Learn
Laugh
Be ourselves

Sit back
Loosen your belt
Let out a sigh
Wait there's more
A sweet treat
Child like surprise
You can't believe your eyes
Our gift to you

Come sit in our front room
Enjoy the city lights
Somehow with you here
They seem more bright
Some moments perfect
They feel just right

Memories like this
Make this feel like home
Being with others not alone
For without friends
These are merely walls
That's why we welcome 
Friends one and all

Time to go
The evening done
You our guest and special one
Come back soon our home to share
A hug a smile you know we care

    Thanks Eillen. Next week we are hosting a live music event. Mary's Nephew and his band are doing a western tour. They are just stopping in Kelowna for this one day. Should be a fun night, we have about 100 people coming.
