Tea of the day: Imperial Formosa Oolong by Golden Moon Tea
Description: Mesmerizing, silver-tipped leaves with a nectary amber liquor. A supple bouquet of orange blossoms and chestnuts is complicated by gentle hints of dates and musky cedar, producing and extraordinary fragrance
Earth and nutty-sweet, a little woodsy with a hint of floral as well
Deep amber color in the cup
Smells earthy and woodsy when steeped
Sweet and musky, slightly bitter. Sugar dials back the bitter a bit, but tastes like it would take milk very well
Today’s thought: we’re out here on our own.
No one can feel what we feel, or take our pain away from us, or do that hard thing instead
However, when we reach out, take a moment to give a hug or share a smile, we do something very important.
We make each other feel less alone
For just a moment, in a little act of kindness, we lighten the load.
It may sound insignificant, but it is the most important thing we can do for each other
“Many hands make light work” applies to our emotional journeys as well
I cannot take your burden for you, nor you for me, but when we share our strength when others are not strong, we show that there is a light at the end of whatever tunnel they may be walking down, making it that much more likely that they’ll reach it
I’d say that’s pretty important.
