Common Gifts

Allowing a few silent moments, with this image,
made me feel good.

Peace and stillness are present here.

One, delicate and easily called “fine” …
the other, sturdy, charmingly "homey,"
and purposefully useful …

They find kinship and harmony
in their unassuming absence of pretense.

Each welcomes me in its own, individual, way.

And I am comfortable with whiling away
unmeasured time with them.

How I do adore such simple,
yet elegant, 'Friends'!

Oh, this is perfect! I love the difference you described in the tea pot and the different yet so wonderful together!

There's nothing like enjoying a simple hot cup of tea or coffee, is there? It truly is the simple things that bring the most pleasure.

Treasures! All about us. Awaiting our recognition ... and celebratory enjoyment. I am so glad that you have joined me in my celebration of these, Dear Betsy.

Lovingly ...
