Our 1st Tea Party

What a delightful day, my daughter and I had our first tea party. My dear friend and mentor Orpha treated Paisley & I to "high tea" at a local tea shop. It felt so good to get all dolled up and sit down to a quiet meal so elegantly served. Orpha held Paisley, kissing and hugging and cuddling her while I enjoyed every.single.bite and sip of my meal. Thank you Orpha for taking the time to make such sweet memories for me. Thank you also for giving me a break from the ordinary day-to-day life and making me feel like such a Lady! I am so blessed to have Godly, wise, real, integral, quality women in my life. It has always been important to me to have someone speaking into my life and that I am in turn speaking into someone else's life. On some days that "someone" may be my children, and on other days it may be a friend who needs a listening ear or a "shoulder to cry on." We all have someone in our life that we can give to, but do we have someone that gives to us? I encourage you today, that if you don't have someone you look up to, someone that builds you up and gives you sound counsel.....pray them into your life. God works through people, through relationships, through accountability and through cups of tea!

"Godly women~
may we be them,
may we know them,
may we raise them."

This is so beautiful - enjoying tea with you little daughter and spending time with a mentor. I love Sugarplums & Tea! Such a dear place!

The mentor thing strikes a longing in me. I had that in PA with several women, and down here I haven't really found women to be that for me yet. Perhaps I just need to pray them in to my life, like you said! Thank you for that reminder!

LOVE the headband on Paisley on her new tooth post!! :)
