Tea Prep

Kramer decided to help me prepare for this Saturday's tea party.
First he turned off the TV so that I could get started on all of the necessary preparations.
Then he helped me with the flower arrangements.
Then he sat on the box just looking cute:)
Here is a little poet-tea
Tea Leaves and Rose Petals

Velvety soft petals fall from a rose,
While tea leaves are steeping in a pot near the stove
Wanderings in my mind that sputter about
As tea flows luxuriously to my cup from the spout,
Tea leaves and rose petals are rather sublime,
When I stop for a moment to relax and unwind.

To the tray, to the porch, where I sit to enjoy
The fragrance of roses, the tea from my cup,
My mind wanders on with thoughts to employ,
While the melody of songbirds on the air does drift up.

What is it about the rose petals sweet,
Or the comforting feeling while sipping some tea?
Heaven knows that these things are kind blessings to me,
In a world filled with anxiety, stresses, and grief.

But just for the moment as I sit on the porch,
The soft petal roses send perfumed support,
While the tea warms my heart and relaxes my soul,
Reminding me each day belongs to the Lord.


BTW, if you would like to see some pictures of me as a wee little one please visit:
