A cup of tea and a good book
I wonder how many collective moments of my life have been spent with a cup of tea and a good book.
I know some people might consider it a waste of time but I do not. I think books have a lot to offer us. Along with actual information, they offer us a momentary glimpse into life as someone else. They offer us insight on people in ways we might not have previously considered. They offer us hope or understanding or perspective. I love them.
Different seasons of my life have given me different things. Sometimes I've started my mornings with a cup of Mama to Be tea and a Bible study or devotional. At times I've spent naptime sipping chai tea and falling into a good novel. Other times I've sat up late sipping mint tea and reading a riveting memoir.
The greatest pleasures in my life are my faith and my family. After that? I really do think I might say my next favorite pleasure is a cup of tea and a good book.
