G - Gracious

A fearless southern girl is . . .

Gracious
She takes mercy on others and treats them with benevolence and kindness. A gracious hostess never remarks to her guest, or anyone else, for that matter, that the guest is under-dressed, overly late or in error any way. She is quick to fogive oversights and lack of knowledge. She welcomes with unsoaring kindness all who enter her home. She applies no blame or fault where it is not due or honestly earned.

I have to admit, this is one of my weaknesses, but I continue to press on. Thanks for the reminder as I have houseguests arriving for the holiday :)
