Hello Tea Friends,
Have you been wondering why I have been missing in action? Well, life has a way of throwing some real curve balls, but as they say in the tea world, "A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until you put her in boiling water!"
My dad had to have intense open heart surgery yesterday. I'm happy to report he is on the road to recovery. As I sat in the waiting room for 6 hours, my phone was buzzing with prayers and well wishes from all around the world. It touched my heart deeply. I was especially taken back when a dear tea friend Jo Johnson stopped by the hospital with a "gift of tea" to help pass the time away. Not only did she bring her own blend of Mint Julep, but she brought along a fabulous presentation. Being a girl of great detail, my heart was overwhelmed by her kindness. Let's not even get into how much the tea rocked! I wouldn't expect any less from Jo who is a certified tea blender!
I encourage those of you who may be facing life obstacles today, to hold on and press in! We can all be strong cups of tea if we don't run away from the boiling waters of life.
