But spring is here! We are half way between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. If you pay attention to the natural world, you'll see daffodils poking through the soil. Trees will start to bud soon and the earth (in our hemisphere) starts gathering more warmth than it loses each day. We've crossed the threshhold. My heart lightens, the dark days are over.
Many people believe this time of year (representing new life and growth) is the best time to set resolutions, even better than New Year's. I resolve to live my life in accordance with this tea shirt - it's the best I've EVER seen!
Rather than choosing war (with myself, my DH, another belief, another person, another country), I will make a cup of tea.
I will breathe in and find my center. I will breathe out and find my heart.
I will offer a cup of tea in hospitality and humility.
I will listen with an open heart.
May it be so.
If you'd like to order your own tea shirt, you will find it at Mountain Rose Herbs. You can also purchase bumper stickers with the same saying.
