a little tea medicine

Some crap happened over the weekend. I feel emotionally bruised and battered, experiencing  the other's pain as well as my own. Oh empathy. I admit I got swept away in it, my own anger and hurt, and it is taking me longer to shake it. To be honest, I don't think I am trying that hard. I am learning to lean into these rough patches as a flower does to the sun, stretching to grow. Yet I am only human, and sometimes I want to sulk.

So here I am, in one of my favorite places, having my tea medicine and sitting with myself and my thoughts, a wonderful and scary thing to do, sulking. I am thankful my babies have allowed for it this morning, taking naps at the same time. For now

  1. oh my gosh, I love this post. I could have (and should have) written it many times over.
    much love to you and a hug. thanks for the honesty. it's wonderful.

  2. what beautiful sweet cherubs to nap at the same time, just at the necessary time! :)

    (love your mug)

  3. Glad to have stumbled across your blog today. Tea is an (almost) cure-all! Well, it helps anyway.
    Oh - and the chances of children snoozing at the same time during the day? Priceless. Enjoy the moment.

  4. You are human, and you're a woman. We have a unique talent of absorbing other's pain and feeling it as if it were our own. Hope your tea medicine helped. Tea can be such a good friend, enveloping you in a warm hug at just the right time.

    Love your mug, too!

  5. Sometimes it seems like children can sense when we need a bit of a peace. I'm glad you've found some time for tea and quiet. Here's to stretching and growing! xoxo

  6. Oddly, my son always seems to offer up space and additional love when I'm feeling low.

    I'm saving that quote!


Thank you so much for bringing your energy! It fills me up to see your comments xoxo
