Home from Home and...Home at Home

All of us find at Home the place to rest, a haven where we share with our family good and bad moments. Recently I read an article about hospitals and how they have just realized that they can learn from the hospitality industry.

I work in the Nutrition Department of the University Hospital of Navarre and for us the one that matters most is each patient. For this reason we think that the best service we can give them is make them feel at Home, convinced that this could help them a lot to recover earlier.

Recently I gave a short presentation with this topic Magic Meals.

All of us need the warmth of a Home regardless of who we are and what we have achieved. We need to communicate this message to others first of all starting with our own family.

Your grain of sand

Pope Benedict XVI visited Spain for the first time last weekend for the World meeting of Families. Among other things he said "The Family is a school of human virtues". Elisabeth Andras in her speech "Professionalism begins at Home" told us that family is the first place where we learn to acquire virtues, virtues which we'll need for the future.
Throughout our life we hear things but it counts to nothing if we don't do anything about them. Something small could be teaching Table Manners in our family. Small but a grain of sand in a big project!
