Viral Gratitude ~ 4.6.20

For the most part, it’s the simple things that measure up and define the quality of a life. It is the quiet pleasures, blessings or gifts, work, activities, friendships and the like that create abundance. During a crisis, simple tasks and routines take on new meaning, because disruption motivates us to refocus and recognize the little comforts that we so often take for granted. 

Today, I am grateful for the comfort of morning toast and tea. My mom used to feed my brother and me toast and tea when we were young and recovering from a virus or illness. Together with the added ministration and pause in routine, toast and tea settled our stomachs and comforted our attention. A type of soul food in a way.

During this pandemic virus, I am grateful for a modest breakfast of toast and tea. Tea is my go-to beverage anyway, while coffee is reserved for imbibing with special after-dinner desserts. So while this is not too much of a stretch—it is worthy of conscious gratitude and serenity.

each day a different cup
out of the cupboard
a porcelain pattern
and her floral bouquets
