Even though I don’t particularly enjoy the commercial aspect of Mother’s Day, it is my favourite holiday. American Thanksgiving is the second. They are both about being grateful for what you have. I woke up today, Mother’s Day 2013 to rain. Not just rain, actually, it is pelting down! Living in an arid zone that has not seen real rain for months, I have another reason to be grateful today!
This morning I opened the Mother’s Day gift my daughter had sent. Recently I have discovered rose hip tea. I was with her a couple of weeks ago when this happened and the very special part of my gift of a large box of gorgeous Ruby Red Rose Hip tea, is that she remembered I enjoyed it. That is love in action. She also tucked in another little item I had mentioned wanting to try some time. More love… the thought, more than the gift, but the gift is nice too!!
The mountain is hidden behind a heavy sheet of moisture and the sound of rain is like music. So today I will drink Ruby Red Rose Hip tea and enjoy the rain and be grateful that I have had the blessing of a wonderful daughter, and have had a life time of being a beloved daughter myself.
I can almost smell your tea. Your words and photos are always so beautiful. I enjoyed a blueberry green tea today in a cup that was made in Alice. Wish we could have enjoyed it together. Happy Mother’s Day to you.
Thank you my dear, I wish I could have shared my ruby red rose hip tea with you too! And thank you for following my blog. XX
I wonder if Australian roses taste different from English ones? I love this tea too – full of Vitamin C and the colour is glorious. Is it the rainy season now where you are ? Happy Mothers Day to you and your daughter 🙂
