Do you find that l-o-n-g weekends fly by so very quickly?
This one did for me!!
This rocking chair was in our children's nursery
Many happy memories.
Now a quiet place for me to reflect over a cup of tea.
In one short week we have attended one son's and daughter in-love's engagement party, a visit from our son and his soon-to-be bride, from the west coast and my sister in-law's wedding, out of town. Our daughter was in the wedding party.
My son from BC and his soon-to-be bride came home for the four days to attend the wedding and reconnect with our extended family. No visit is ever long enough with them. This visit was compressed into a few hours, spread over a couple of days.
Short but sweet.
A silver tray adorned with a Scottish napkin.
A funky white teapot for one,
a special teacup, cream and sugar.
Antique lace framed and ready to hang.
Still experimenting with that perfect place?
I have learnt that people and relationships are more important than being busy and sometimes we need to slow down, release the should do's for later and concentrate on the people we love.
Thank you notes to write.
Monogram sticker to add a special touch to the back flap of the envelope.
Time to talk to God.
Now it is time to take a quiet moment to help me organize my priorities for the coming week, over a cup of steaming tea. No sweets this time. I will reminisce over the deserts at the wedding.
