Oh, how I love thee, tea.
The ritual of steeping leaves, or even just watching the colour swirl out from a teabag, always calms my mind. The comfort I get from wrapping my hands around a warm mug never fails to sooth.
You gently remind me that no matter what life brings, you are my constant companion – undemanding, faithful, true; you sustain me, settle me, stimulate me, and help me summon the strength to continue.
You are the thread which holds my memories together, and you remind me that life goes on.
Simple things make our lives better. You are my most cherished simple thing.
