A landmark: son with the flu actually asked Mom to steep a cup of something to settle his stomach. And drank it. I don’t get to be nurturing very often these days.

Side by side with over-the-counter pharmaceuticals, I don’t think there’s anything that can beat strong peppermint tea for a good deal of what ails ya. (And this particular brand is good and stout.)

When feeling under the weather, you just can’t underestimate the Mother’s Presence. As a teenager when I got my cramps, I sometimes got my Mum to rub my lower back and it would help a bit. But it only worked if it was her. :)

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
