A Special Birthday Gift


Before we opened our gifts at our family Christmas celebration at my parents’ home in Michigan, my Mom asked me to sit on the couch. As I did, everyone – my Dad, my children, my brother and his family – came into the room and sat around me. Then my parents presented me with a most wondrous amazing gift for my 50th birthday. A scrapbook of my life filled with photos. My eyes filled with tears as I turned the pages and reminisced with my family about all that I had experienced in my half century on this earth. Words are inadequate to describe this experience and how special this gift is so I will share a few of the pages.

    Wow! what a nice gift. I love art and I love tea = I love your blog. I must go brew a couple of tea right now in your honor. I just got a delivery of my favorite tea in the entire world: Taylors of Harrogate (tea room blend). Cheers, Trish G.
