Required: a foot stool, a pillow, one glass of ice-cold lemonade, a plate of homemade oatmeal cookies, and a hug
My precious mother believed these items were required to help guests feel like family in her country home. Refusing a foot stool was futile as she thought, “You must be tired.” And the pillow? “Why, you’d be much more comfortable with a pillow at your back,” she would insist.
Crossing her threshold comforted the hearts of all who entered. Visitors experienced a sense of coming home, of stepping out of a hurry-scurry world where fighting for acceptance was commonplace. At Sadie’s, they felt instant love and appreciation.
