Sweet and cherished moments in life happen during some of the most tumultuous times. Yesterday, my nine year old niece, Ellie, and I spent a cherished moment together sharing tea in downtown Naples. It was a very belated birthday present. Mr. Bramble joined us for pink lemonade, tea, savory sandwiches, scones, and sweets. This sweet moment in time was conversation about pretty tea cups, favorite colors, favorite foods that each relative makes, the step back in time, pretending we were in England. Each of us attempted to holdup our pinkie, while sipping our tea. No one sat next to us on a cell phone or on an iPod, just the two of us oblivious to the outside world on a warm summer day. Thank you, my little Ellie, for bringing me back to innocents.
Watch out Josie, Maisy, and my Spooky, you’re next.
