An Elegant Tea
"There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea." ~Henry James, The Portrait of a Lady
"Tea is drunk to forget the din of the world." ~T'ien Yiheng
"When we sip tea, we are on our way to serenity.” ~ Alexandra Stoddard
Taking serene breaths, we soaked in the lovely, elegant setting. We conversed without children to worry about and yet we were there to celebrate their lives, making us mothers. Four of the ladies are pregnant and have our admiration for their openness to life. We toasted them.
The Tea warmed us, relaxed us.
“Come, let us have some tea and continue to talk about happy things.” ~Chaim Potok
"The spirit of the tea beverage is one of peace, comfort and refinement.” ~Arthur Gray
Thankful for my friends, the gift of life, sitters and husbands, time to talk...laugh and exhale.
