Reading the Tea Leaves

My friend Lisabel recently asked me what my greatest joy moment was for that day. I had to think about it, because I’m generally so grateful for the many joy moments in a day, I wouldn’t dare compare them. Not even sure I could. But sometimes, I’ve discovered, moments do stand out.

Remember those free samples I talked about in a previous post? That was how it started, and that was how I found myself with three types of Yogi Tea to try. After some deliberation (and sniffing), I decided to try Himalayan Apple Spice first. I opened the paper pouch, pulled out the teabag, and relished the enticing scent—appley and spicy, just like the name says. Ooh this is gonna be good. Then I noticed a tiny message on the paper that holds the string. It simply said, “Love your soul.”

I mean, isn’t that what we all need to do—love our souls? And wouldn’t you love to say that to someone, or hear them say it to you? Seriously sweet. My other teabag messages were precious too. The second was, “Every heartbeat creates a miracle,” and the third was, “Your infinity in you is the reality in you.” Awww...

Thanks Yogi, for the tea and the joy. :)

Great saying. Simple. Affirmative. I'm going to put that one on my wall!
