I Can See More Clearly

When fog rolls in I feel like just curling up in a blankie with a cup of tea
and hibernating for awhile.
There is a special light that engulfs the soul and holds it in it's hand.
As the day turns toward afternoon the sun breaks through and I laugh
with the warmth that surrounds me.
Yes, I can see more clearly with the sunlight,
but the fog gives me rest.
Sometimes needed is the rest, the quiet time, the reflection time.
Then when the sun comes again, we can dance!

Come again on Friday as there will be a special give-away announced.
You won't want to miss this one.

From Where I Sit

From where I sit,
I can see forever.
Surrounded by the beauty of the day.
Reminiscing on the past.
Looking toward the future.
For today we can only count on.
Today I will look at the Beauty,
the JOY, and the Wonder of my Surroundings.
I will savor and take it in,
this one day and only this one day 
may it be a one of Delight.

Tea Time Thoughts

 "Now stir the fire, and close the shutters fast.
Let fall the curtains, wheel the sofa round;
And while the bubbling and loud hissing urn
Throws up a steamy column, and the cups,
That cheer but not inebriate, wait on each,
So let us welcome peaceful evening in."
~William Cowper

Peaceful evenings with a cup of tea.
Oh sitting in the solitude.
Savor, sip and take it in.
Moments of tranquility.
Reflect and remember the moments of the day.
Let the warmth and scents of the tea surround you.
Smile and be delighted.

Monday's Quotes

 "The way you show up matters. 
If you attempt or do something that inspires you, 
it inspires others to do what inspires them.
 Passion, drive, dedication, happiness and raw 
energy are all massively contagious".
 - S.Dinsmore

Walking Here

If I don't post a comment and share a story for a few days,
I will be walking here and sharing family time there.
You are in my heart and I will be with you soon.
Be prepared for next week I am thinking of a very special give-away.
Hugs sent your way!

Tea Time Sunday

Sunday I helped with a special tea time at my church.
It was a delight to share time with the ladies of the church
and send blessings to our pastor's wife and daughters who will soon be moving away.
It was a potluck tea.
What a lovely well balanced gathering of sandwiches and sweets.
The tea and scones were my contribution.
The tea served was Rama Tulsi for the herbal selection
and a Cream Earl Grey for those that didn't mind the caffeine.
Both were enjoyed!

The decorations were flowers.
The younger girls especially loved the candy and peanut jars.

How fun to share in the gift of tea with the women I worship with.
