I learned the finer points and we have great fun when we are up to our apron strings in flour.  This friend has just experienced a tragedy that has caused her to think and re-think her decisions. In this instance her decisions were impeccable and her anxiety about these moments have caused her to over-think. Rolling dough and working out problems is therapeutic and bonding. It was time for tea.

After we wrapped up, and enjoyed our soothing cuppa, life seemed a little more civil, a bit more kind, and prepared for the difficult days ahead. Tea does that.
