Welcome to Tea for Tuesday! I thought I would share another teacup story with you.
I think of this teacup as Pretty Posies because of all the pretty purple flowers on it. This is the only teacup that I have ever purchased brand new for myself.
A few years ago, I helped teach a Christian moms co-op preschool. Those little kids were so adorable! That year was very challenging - teaching is a tough job! The end of that school year was a bit of a relief for me as I do not feel called or led to teach. After it was over, all the moms were sweet enough to treat us teachers to a full lunch tea at a cute tea place. It was a lovely time of fellowship, fun, and laughter.
As we were getting ready to leave, I spotted this teacup. It was so pretty, but I was considering whether or not to purchase it. I ended up deciding to get it as a gift to myself - both as a memory of that time and as a reward for completing a challenge that was out of my comfort zone. I'm glad I bought it! I will always remember that time by seeing my cup (and from still seeing some of those sweet kids who are now third-graders!).
I hope you enjoyed today's little teacup tale. Have you ever purchased a brand new teacup for yourself?
Have a lovely Two-sday!
