Yesterday’s Tea Salon was all about honoring our ancestors. The camaraderie and conversations that happen on these Sundays is always so good. I know our Ancestors would be pleased. Stories were told, family was remembered, tears were shed and hearts were filled. And so were our stomachs. The spread, as usual was beautiful. It made me happy to be able to talk about those ancestors who contributed to our stories and gave us life, even those whose lessons were painful. Some of those people we found we may not want to “honor”, but we were able to acknowledge them and their role in shaping who we are today. It was a good way to begin a season that is traditionally filled with family and expectations. It was a good way to remember, regroup and prepare for whatever may be coming up for us. And to know that we are connected to something bigger and to each other.
