Day 326 - Friday 21 November

"There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behaviour, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us. ‘Tis good to give a stranger a meal, or a night’s lodging. ‘Tis better to be hospitable to his good meaning and thought, and give courage to a companion. We must be as courteous to a man as we are to a picture, which we are willing to give the advantage of a good light. ” - Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-82), philosopher, poet, essayist

I like to think I fit in with this prompt and that I am charitable and courteous. As I have said before I try to treat people in the same way as I would like to be treated. It would be unfair to expect to something that you are not willing to do or give yourself.
Last week we had a tombola with supplier samples for Children in Need and I won this lovely big plate which has a matching vase and some vanilla pot pourri.
