Simple Blessings Abound...

It has been quite some time since I have been on my blog.  Life has a funny way of jumping in the way every time I think I will have a chance to write.  I figured I would take a few minutes and reconnect with those who care to read the blog and look forward to more active participation this year.

It really is amazing to me that this simple blessing, this simple act of having tea, can bring me so much happiness and energy each day.  For that I am grateful and hope that you all can count at least one simple blessing that exists for you each day.
