"Have a friend over for tea. Serve cinnamon melba toast and have a real talk. This time of year when the pressure to spend money is intense, calm down and give the most precious gift. Give of yourself." ~ Alexandra Stoddard, Grace Notes
Now that sounds like a great idea... it's been a while since I've had anyone over for tea. Or mulled cider or hot cocoa. On such an overcast and snowing afternoon, it would be perfect day for a wee visit in some cozy nook. It would be sure to perk any dragging spirits and waning energies.
Wishing you glimpses of heaven in unexpected places,
This is a good idea I think. Must be coffee in my area, though, as when you say 'tea', people think of iced tea. ;) Love the picture with your post too!ReplyDelete
I DO enjoy Alexandra Stoddard's books. Your quote reminds me it's time for some re-reading :) Some of my better moments in the last couple of weeks have been those I've shared with friends....(and like Merry above me, it would be coffee for me also).ReplyDelete
Alexandra Stoddard's books are such a delight. I too realize that in the midst of all that is happening one needs to really take a few minutes to enjoy what is really important this time of the year. Take care!ReplyDelete
