Thirty Days of Thanx :: Day 9

Today I am thankful for Tea. The aromatic, tasty liquid...  which warms the body... soothes the soul... lifts your spirit....  and helps to renew you, when you are down....
There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea.  ~Bernard-Paul Heroux

I am also thankful for it's gentle daily reminder to always be strong, thankful, and to look for the good, even despite everything going awry around you.... 
 "Remember the tea kettle - it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it still sings!"
And most of all, I am thankful for having the example of a Marmee who constantly pours herself into our lives.. teaching us, training us, guiding us in the things of the Lord. ~ She is truly an example of the faith... who, when steeped in the most challenging "hot waters" of life,  has trusted God completely to get through.. only to come out stronger & more robust in her testimony and walk with the the Lord!!
