Wednesday Words~

Cooking for people is an enormously
significant expression of generosity and
soulfulness, and entertaining is a way to
be generous and creative.  You're 
sharing your life with people.  Of course,
it's also an expression of your own need
for approval and applause.  Nothing 
wrong with that.
