Welcome, I invite you to brew a cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate, add a tasty treat of delight and join me for a few minutes of reflection.
I have always enjoyed a nice cup of tea, I feel that being able to sit for the time it takes to drink a good cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate and munch on a sweet or savory treat helps to still our minds and souls for that brief course of reflection, upon our own lives or the lives of those who cross our paths is very important for our wellbeing.
When I was counseling, I would offer a cuppa to those who sought counsel, as I found that having a time together over a “cuppa” would create a relaxed time of shared focus.
One of my favorite tea blends is Lady Grey tea, a mild black tea blended with bergamot & a touch of citrus. It can be taken either black or as I enjoy it with milk & sugar. As I write this I am enjoying just such a cup today & my treat is a sweet bite of deliciousness covered with dark chocolate.
You know, life can be likened to a cup of Lady Grey tea at times, things seem to be mild, not in the fast lane and not in the slow lane but mild. Some days seem common place like the black tea, but if we linger and taste awhile, we can see that our life is flavored with touches of blessings in the everyday common place like the citrus and bergamot in Lady Grey.
A Blessing is unique for each person, in what is perceived as a blessing for one, can seem like a curse to another who may be observing from afar. It all depends on the perception of the receiver and the onlooker, like the preference for having your tea black, white or with sugar.
Today I have seen that the blessings that flavor my life is the life I have lived. It has been a full life with both joyous and sadder times but I am here to write my story and that is a blessing in itself.
As we sit for our tea time together each week, I will share the wisdom I have learned through times that you may find encouraging, enlightening & flavorsome.
Have you thought of the blessings that may be flavoring your life lately?
Well my tea is now finished and the tasty delight of dark chocolate, coconut and citrus still lingers upon my tongue.
I invite you to join me for tea and delights again dear friend…until then…
