#640 #threeoldfriends #threeteacups and plenty of cakes! The beauty of relationships which never change…true friendship is measured not by time spent together, but by the strength of the bond when they are there.
#472 As I remembered on the #eleventhhour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, I was drawn to think about #families in particular – those who have loved and lost. Family is where ordinary life happens, where we gather, where we squabble, where we are accepted and loved and where we love in spite of so much. Today I remember the many incomplete families of the past and the present, and their brave members who have sacrificed their own lives for the lives of many. #wewillrememberthem
#324 Home is so complicated for me at the moment…It never quite feels complete! I’m either in a space with all of my things, but missing friends and family, and at times my partner, or I’m amongst family and friends but don’t have my home comforts. Perhaps I need to think more simply: today #home is a #cupoftea in my favourite cup, whilst sat in familiar surroundings…with a cat! #itsgoodtobehome
#259 #breakfast is about preparing yourself for the day, physically as well as spiritually and mentally. It is the most important meal of the day for me and I take so much pleasure in sharing it with others. This morning, after #morningprayer with #tea I made #blueberrypancakes to share with friends – a great way to start the day! #sustainyourself #sustainyoursoul
#258 This afternoon there was a #powercut in the village which stopped me in my tracks. I had been doing some work but the Internet and printer were both off. I had been meaning to get a cup of #tea for some time but that was not possible as even the hob is electric. There was no radio, no tea, no food (I was just going to toast some crumpets) and no phone as there is little to no signal without an Internet boost. It was a very quiet hour which made me think about how much I take for granted in our modern, fast paced society. After the power returned, my tea and crumpets tasted better than ever, but I also appreciated the #stillness and #silence. whilst it is an inconvenience, there is a greater #appreciation for something once it has gone. It made me wonder what, or who, in life should I have more appreciation of before it is too late…
#253 I received some Smoky Russian Caravan #tea through the post as a gift. It is my favourite tea, with a lovely taste which just envelopes and relaxes you. A cup of tea is a #beautifulgift – one which I cherish and thank God for today.
