tea and gratitude

with Love and gratitude to all…

thank you for encircling our family with Love and Kindness…

your heartfelt words of comfort and good wishes mean so much…

“From your beauty ablaze like the sun,

from the curls of your hair,
My heart has become ecstatic;

O my soul, hand me this brimming cup,
Do not weigh pain and misery,

contemplate love,

contemplate friendship;
Do not mull over tyranny and neglect;

think of all those who have their eyes fixed on you.
Surname all grief “grace”;

transmute pain and anguish into joy,
And ask from joy all happiness,

all security,

all peace.
Demand that security, that peace,

demand them,
Choose the company of those withdrawn in love.
Listen to those who open a path to you:

listen, and don’t say a word.” ~Rumi

Happy T Tuesday Dear Ones ~*~ OXO
