In a Cup of Tea

Drinking from cup of tea this morning
I found gratitude welling within.
Words of thanks plentiful
came, just like that.

How lucky to have a home
that's mine.
The old folks at the nursing home
aren't so fortunate.

How wonderful that the body
is feeling pretty good.
No major aches and pains.
the time has not yet come.

How sweet the kindness of Him
who prepared the delicious brew
with a twinge of ginger
for even more delight.

How precious the luxury of time
not to be rushed through
No demands on Sunday morning,
only sitting at the kitchen table.

So much packed in every sip,
that too shall pass
making room for new moments,
who knows?


  1. Beautiful. Thank you for sharing this.

  2. Sometimes I feel like I live in a nursing home!

  3. Mmmm. . . moments of luxurious security. . . with gratitude for awareness (despite its fleeting quality). Lovely.

  4. Yet sometimes in our rush to start the day, we miss the little things, the enjoyment a cup of tea can bring.

  5. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for joining in this simple moment of gratitude.
