Two smiling friends showed up at my house on this chilly Monday. Their arms were filled with boxes as they headed straight for the kitchen table. I was amazed as they began arranging delightful treats of goodness, such as cucumber sandwiches, egg salad sandwiches, fresh scones with cream, dipped strawberries, little quiches and fresh fruit. The afternoon quickly warmed up as we spent a couple of sweet hours sipping Earl Grey, chatting and laughing.
This unexpected gift will warm my heart for years to come. Lynn and Teri know that I love all things TEA. They planned and schemed. They baked. They brought their own dishes. They gave up their precious after-work hours. Such a thoughtful surprise! They left behind extra tea treats, a box of Earl Grey, a jar of chocolate hearts and a sweet card. I feel so spoiled, loved, grateful, blessed.

Prayer for Today: Thank you, Lord, for sweet companions, simple pleasures, and memories to treasure.
