Five Minute Friday: Welcome

Welcome.  The timer is ticking and my mind is racing.  Racing for something to write. 

Ah.  Here we go.  Welcome mats.  I know, random, right? 

I'm a home stager.  A "welcome" mat is one small element that helps prospective home buyers feel, well, welcome.  It doesn't have to say "welcome".  In fact, I personally and professionally prefer them to not say anything.  Subtlety is best.

Just like a mat a the front door welcomes visitors to come in and stay awhile, your smile is your own personal welcome mat.  A smile invites strangers, friends, even enemies.  A smile welcomes.

Are you wearing your welcome mat today?


  1. I came here from the five-minute Friday. I love to see how many different ways different people interpret the same topic!

  2. Marytoo, it is great fun, isn't it? Thanks so much for stopping by. :)
