Tea Rejuvenates

Tea helps our head and heart.
Tea medicates most every part.
Tea rejuvenates the very old.
Tea warms the hands of those who're cold.

Although I don't recall where I first found this picture, it is one of my favorites because it tells a story and elicits an emotional response from the viewer. This could be your Grandma, or mine. . .and nothing sounds nicer than sipping a cup of tea with Grandmother!


  1. Such a sweet picture...wish I had a grandma!

  2. What a unique photo of days gone by, of simpler times and simple pleasures.

  3. This reminds me of coming home from college and sitting down for a chat and a cup of tea with my mother. I can still see the teapot, which has since disappeared from her belongings.

  4. What sweet to enjoy a little tea and a good friend! Thanks for sharing!

    blessings, kari and kijsa
