Spring has sprung with a wonderful vengeance this week.
It's here early this year (bless it's heart!)
It caused a perfectly gentle breeze to blow throughout the house this week. The whispering sound of it was a surrounding constant.
All the windows were open and the sunbeams were glowing through them, illuminating the house.
My husband, who is a pastor, was feeling like he'd somehow missed Easter and had fast forwarded to almost May.
It was good that the weather made it almost impossible to feel really anxious. I was, once again, wondering how I'd gotten myself into the middle of this titanic project with a deadline.
Today was the Ladies' Tea.
It came together beautifully (and miraculously). "I don't know how it always does - it's a mystery!"
I must just say, though, "I'm one tired bunny!"
I'm sorry that I didn't have a chance to grab my camera before [about] 25 women had come through and ravaged the table. I was busy pouring 35 cups of lovely golden tea.
The cucumber sandwiches were the favorite this year.
I'm so relieved and happy and grateful that it was the sparkling peaceful respite that I had hoped it would be. I now hope, that the fruit of our sweet time together resonates on and on.
It was precious and so is every one of my friends who came!!!
Now, I have my feet up. Tom is putting the boys in bed. My week is ending the same way it's been for the most part - quietly. Amazing!
The most eloquent word that I can think of now is,
I just wanted to share a bit right away. Give me a day or two - I will have many more happy photos to share with you!
( Speaking of hugs and kisses, I love how, at the end of the tea, I get double hugs from every lady who has come. It makes me think that they are really glad they came!)
P.S. Speaking of lovely, precious people ... I had noticed that the squares of "faces" of "followers" is making the most beautiful mosaic, patchwork quilt in my right hand column at the moment.
