Taking Tea

Tea time – real or imaginary – has always been an important part of our family life.  After 20 years of motherhood, it still warms my heart to see my children composing a tea party for themselves.

 “Tea to the English is really a picnic indoors.” ~Alice Walker

Taking the time to take tea teaches children about hospitality.  It teaches them to take some time out of each day to sit quietly and companionably.  It is something we could all do with reminding ourselves of, perhaps?

“There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea”.  ~Bernard-Paul Heroux
