Tea customers, tea quotes and trouble

[caption id="attachment_1108" align="alignleft" width="256"]Tea quote A greeting card quote by Roderick Field[/caption]
I am the mother of 5 adult children. With each delivery, I have a vivid memory of holding my new babe and saying to the nurse, "May I have a cup of tea?" Now I am not saying that giving birth was catastrophic, but it can be traumatic. A cup of tea provided comfort, diminishing the 'trouble' of birthing and offering soothing reflection.  I share with others this sentiment as you can see.

I love it when a tea customer thinks of me while on vacation! Bev was in the Munro bookstore in Victoria when this card caught her eye (no pun intended)!

She bought it for me and now I will share it here and also put it on the wall at the market. It reminded me of another quote from my collection:

"Tea is wealth itself, because there is nothing
that cannot be lost,
no problem that will not disappear, no burden that
will not float away,
between the first sip and the last."      The Minister of Leaves

And yet another:

"There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea."   Bernard-Paul Heroux
