Good evening! How do you know if you like something….unless….you try it! How many times does one hear this line in a lifetime? Endlessly! I allowed myself to embrace this opportunity, recently, with my amazing daughter-in-law! Allow me to share…my daughter-in-law can prepare nearly any meal – or drink – with amazing results. She did it again recently….listen to how charming she is:
Amazing Daughter-In-Law: “Would you like to join me in a cup of tea?”
Me: “I am not a fan of tea! I’ve tried tea before and never took to liking it.”
Amazing Daughter-in-law: “Will you try MY tea…I believe you’ll like the way I prepare MY tea…I add a few special things to MY tea! You’ll be so happy you tried it!”
Me: “Of course!”
C’mon………who says “No!” to an amazing daughter-in-law?? Not me! —
—– Whilst the tea is being preparing….allow me to share a comparison….this reminds me of those times when someone says “You’ve gotta read this book!” -but – It happens not to be the genre you enjoy reading — so….what does one do? I usually ask tons of questions to encourage them to persuade me on taking a chance to invest my time in this book they are suggesting – I am always amazed when I find someone who can deliver a summary of their suggested book as though they knew the author personally. Anyone, who displays such strong passion about their suggested book, usually, wins me over.
My daughter-in-law displayed much confidence in the method of her preparation of this tea – she, too, won me over!
Results —Ahhh….she was correct! I was very happy that I tried it! — Because….I loved it!! The smell and taste of the tea my daughter-in-law prepared, transferred me to memories in my home town – A quaint tea shop that I would visit and have fabulous desert with…not tea…but water (because I thought I didn’t like tea). I spent many days at my claimed cozy table, three windows left of the french doors, and directly in front of the faux fire-place that emitted faux flames, to enjoy during any season. I loved this place! – I would sit in this spot, solo, for hours – writing in my journal.
The memory was so special! – And the tea was very delicious! Yes, I even asked for a second cup of tea!
This “tea time” was a moment that I will treasure! She shared her special recipe and converted me to a tea drinker…I look forward to many more of these special moments!
