tea makes the heart grow fonder

steaming teapot

We’ve been MIA and we apologize. We run here. We work there. We brew. We blend. We deliver. We open. We close. We have been moving at the speed of light!

So… this morning. We have slowed down just a bit. Turned on the tea kettle, prepared a cup of tea (we’re actually on cup three), and enjoyed the moment. There are no cell phones around. No iPads or computers (I promise to shut down after this post!). No agenda.

Everyone in the office is on required quiet time break. It’s nice. I can hear the bird outside of the window. I can hear a lawnmower in the distance. I can the faint noise of the flute in the jazz song playing on the radio. I can smell the lemon verbena growing in the office. My senses are alive. My heart is calm. And this cup of tea feels good in my hands.

Try it. Take a moment for yourself. Unplug. Breathe. And sip…
