The Victoria Rose Teacup

I love this story!  Although I don't remember where I found it, I think it was the verse on a greeting card I once bought.  I hope you are blessed by the message in this sweet story, as I was.

Diary of  Victoria Rose

Years ago I found a solitary tea cup at an antique shop with a gorgeous rose pattern.  I fell in love with it on the spot.  From then on, I searched high and low for the rest of the set in china shops, at auctions, flea markets, rummage sales. . .  Alas, without success!  Not even a saucer!!! Just as I was beginning to suspect that the cup wasn't part of a set at all, but a one-of-a-kind, never to be found again treasure, I was served tea on the very same china at the home of a friend!  Well, I stared with wide eyes until my friend said, "Isn't it beautiful?  I found it at an estate sale.  Unfortunately, one of the cups is missing."  With a twinkle in my eye, I knew that my precious cup would soon have a new home.
