Random Reason to Rejoice #7

This perfect little gift.

A new friend recently gave me this adorable, precious, dainty (can you tell I love it?) little tea cup. It's numbered Royal Copenhagen, delicate, beautiful, just right for my brief first-thing-in-the morning tea ritual.

While I had been rushing to finish a larger cup or pouring out unconsumed tea, neither of which is a soothing way to start the day, now I sip peacefully, enjoying the graciousness of the bright blue flowers, the leaf hidden under the cup until I lift it, and that gentle clink that fine china makes when I set the cup back down. Now I can truly relax into my day-making ritual because I have a cup that's just the right size for the moment.

Thanks, new friend.
