Everything I learned was over a cup of forbidden tea

Everything I learned was over a cup of tea

That’s right!
My Mom had eight kids and she didn’t have a lot of time to sit down and talk all night.
Sometimes she would make a cup of tea.
I always thought it a bit strange because our religion didn’t allow you to drink caffiene you see.
She would say to me, “You look like you might need a cup of tea”.
Looking back now, it was her was of having a quiet moment with me.
It’s been 24 years since I lost my Mom to cancer and now I’m a mother of three.
It took me until I had my own children and offered them their very own tiny cup of tea.
To realize the special ties, bonds and love my Mother had instilled in me.
I’m thankful for each and every day that I shared with her that forbidden tea.
