The tea party was such fun. Laughter and sharing of life. Touching base with kindred spirits who like my blogging friends, have empathy for each other sprinkled liberally with affection. We tried more than one kind of tea and conversation never slowed down. I showed off my collage 'collection', which I absolutely love to do, cause then I can enjoy them again myself. We shared poignant moments of our lives with one another, eyes lighting with laughter and at times, glistening with an unshed tear. We always say the same thing at the end of our time together. Why don't we do this more often? Its a luxury we all need...Time to be bonding with our friends, our sisters. Taking time to stop..and 'love one another'.
