Hearts and Family...

Sometimes feeling a little less stressed is as easy as a humongous exhale followed up with a cup of tea...something like Bengal Spice maybe?

Sometimes life’s best soft parts are a like simple cup of tea
Because sometimes life’s best hard parts are hearts and family
We give all that we’ve got and sometimes it is not enough
And all that we can do then is to love and love... and love

Sometimes we cannot mend what we would like to fix like new
We want answers but in the end questions will have to do
The way from here to there can be quite tender and quite rough
And all that we can do is pray and pray and love and love

Love is patient and kind; it does not envy, no, or boast
It does not seek itself but looks to others first and most
And sometimes its best soft part is a little cup of tea
While we cherish love’s best hard parts of hearts and family

I’m guessing we each have our own version of ‘best hard parts’ that teach us far more about love than all the soft parts put together!
