Coming up-Tea for Two Tuesday!

Coming up-Tea for Two Tuesday!

Although January is Hot Tea Month , tea lovers at Holiday Insights created Tea for Two Tuesday, celebrated on the third Tuesday in March.  Tea for one, sipping while reading or pondering is a respite and a piece of serene-tea. When I add soft instrumental music to the background, I often call it a "selah", the word we find in Psalms, a...

Happy International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day

Today we celebrate women. I am preparing a tea with friends and was reminded how valuable tea was when it first made its way to America. Tea was kept in a locked caddy and even the housekeeper didn't have the key. It was kept by the woman of the home. Women today, in our homes and outside, still hold keys--to set a tone of peace and love, to...

Jewelry and the Treasure of Words

As my daughter Kate and I explored the hobby of jewelry making, we didn't know how complicated and costly it would be. It was fun to imagine finished pieces, but choosing patterns, stones, beads, and appropriate clasps to finish the pieces was time consuming.  Each part had its purpose and the result would make a statement and a difference....

A Sweet Encounter: Chocolate and Kindness

A Sweet Encounter: Chocolate and Kindness

During a trip to the beach last week, my friends and I stopped at a chocolate shop. A photo of the famous Lucy and Ethel candy factory episode triggered laughter and the aroma of chocolate beckoned us toward the candy counter. While we were browsing, a kind gentleman asked my friend Dot, “If you could have any day you wanted what would you...

Peace: Trading Lunches and Trading Hearts

When my girls were little, I packed healthy school lunches. The other day, my daughter Kate reminded me no one ever wanted to trade lunches with her. A turkey sandwich, fruit, or yogurt wasn’t appealing. Kids wanted chips, Twinkies, and Little Debbie’s. Whenever we trade, we expect to get something better. Kate’s friends didn’t realize her...
