You are welcome

After writing a thank you note to dear friends who had welcomed me into their home for a brief stay, I  looked for an added touch for the envelope.  Looking through my small collection of decorative stamps, I found just the perfect sentiment.  The words expressed my thoughts so well, and I decided to add the quote to my collection. 
It is a comfort and a source of such pleasure when the doors to our homes, and hearts, are opened to welcome a friend.  It might be a quick cup of tea, a lengthy conversation over lunch, or an overnight is in the welcoming that the blessing is found.
