Just some thoughts:
“Would you like to come and sit with us?”
Simple statement isn’t it? Just asking a question. “Would you like to sit with us?”
As I sat this morning waiting for a church service to begin I saw a lady get up from where she was sitting and walk to a lady sitting in a large empty seating area by herself and ask her that question. The exchange was simple, brief and the lady got up from her seat and it appeared to me she was pleased to be asked. She did go and sit with the one who had asked her.
It is special to be “included” and it is equally special when another has the mindset to be that observant, thoughtful and makes the effort to go to another and ask “Would you like to sit with us.”
Everyday there are folks out there who need to be asked, invited to be included. We all need to give that some thought the next time we see someone sitting alone. Hey, the worst they might say, is “No.” Even then I bet they would say, “No but thank you.”
