Almost Perfect World


Yesterday I got up on the wrong side of the bed. A cup of tea seemed to be in order, and when I saw the special tea blend from Germany, “Perfect World,” it seemed like the right morning to open the package.

There is no ingredients list. I sprinkled some leaves out on a plate to give it a look. There are chamomile flowers there, I can see that much.

 

steaming & steeping

I poured some boiling water over the herbs in a measuring cup, and brewed it what turned out to be too weakly. After a few minutes I put the pretty liquid in a pretty teacup for beauty’s sake. That wasn’t enough tea to direct my mood in any way. I’ll have to try it another time, stronger and in a big mug.

in my grandma’s teacup even

 

Today I woke up again. Almost before I figured out what side to get out on, my dear, sweet-hearted, only-beloved husband brought me some flowers. It’s been a nearly perfect day so far.

  1. I can relate to those “waking up on the wrong side of the bed” days…

    When we're in a vulnerable and weak place in life, what a gift and how precious it is to be encouraged and strengthened by our husbands. Your roses are beautiful! ❤

  2. Sometimes just making the choice to drink my morning drink in a beautiful cup lifts my spirits. So wonderful that your husband brought you unexpected flowers. How could that not bring a smile to anyone's face?
