When someone calls up and asks if you have coffee, the answer is 'yes'.
Even if you haven't had your shower yet, you're in the middle of laundry, ironing, paying bills, reading a book, making dinner, getting the garbage out, gardening, there is always just a little bit of work to be done....
Never miss the chance for a visit. The dirt and mess can wait.
In the short time it takes for them to land in your driveway, you can get a quick wash, brush your hair and teeth, put on a clean shirt, slap on some lipstick and clear a spot at the table for a couple of cups and few cookies.
When you say 'yes', you're also shouting out, "Hey! You're number one."
Treasure the gift of friendship.
Always say 'yes'.
