This year has been a tough year for many of us. My year.. 2020, has seen death, pandemic, financial loss, civil unrest, and my own personal heath issues. Each of us has had a personal story in these past months. This time has affected us all. Some good, some not so good. Either way, how you feel matters.
I personally have felt very overwhelmed at times by these past months. But then I tell myself, everyone else is going through this too, so stop complaining… This is true. But what you feel is also true. Let’s not belittle how you or someone else may feel. It is all valid. Sharing each other’s burdens is part of being a community.
The wonderful thing about a tea room is this is what people come to do. Friends coming together, sharing a pot of tea , and sharing each other’s burdens.
The first week we had reopened I had a reservation where these dear friends had not seen each other for 3 months. The tea room was the place they chose to celebrate being reunited. This warmed my heart for sure! Come, share a pot of tea, and share your burdens with us. We are all in this together!
