All eyes have been on ROME for the past few weeks and especially today!
I’ve enjoyed seeing the place that I’ve been to and wish to return on TV. It’s my dream to take my granddaughters to Rome (and Greece if I could). Unless there’s a miracle this won’t happen, but I hope they get to go one day.
I wrote about my adventure on my blog www.teaandincense.com with a link to a song by il volo and a few pictures by me.
I like the message of the new Pope. Blessed are the Poor! Remember the Poor!
Even though I am not Catholic, and you may not be Catholic either, I love to hear all words of Mercy. I am reminded and inspired to be better than I am.
My tea today reminded me of the goodness of the smallest of things, in the little leaves that we enjoy as tea.
This tea in particular gave me head to toe warming, like a broom had swept out an interior chill.
Have you ever lifted your cup of tea, taken a sip and shivered with delight?
I am a dark chocolate junkie, a salted chocolate lover.
This tea provided effortless imaginations of salted butterscotch with my beloved dark chocolate.
In my delighted fanciful imaginations, I wanted a buttery, flaky cheese croissant paired with the richness of my tea. I craved the flavors blending together.
Tea for memories, for memorable days…and then again…reminding me that such small things are gloriously important and wondrous…even when they don’t look like much. A small leaf, a dry and plain thing.
What person looks so plain and poor, observed as debris yet has such glorious importance when kindness and attention is given.
It makes me shiver.
