355 – The Power of Tea

Wrinkles are the tattoos we wear made with ink mixed from blood and charcoal made from the tree of life.

How often in life do you ever get a genuine second chance? I was so happy to see my Mum today – she was in fine form and told us about how she’d had a marriage proposal while she’d been in hospital.

“Marriage?”

“Yes, pft, he was a much younger man.”

“Uh, Mum, how old do you think my new Daddy might be?”

“Oh, probably in his 70s – he was a nutcase, so I told him where to go!”

Despite this, Mum seemed quited chuffed with this – I guess when you’ve got it, you’ve got it; especially when you’ve still got it at 93.

Meanwhile, Mum has finally been able to enjoy the long awaited for cup of tea. Given that just over a couple of weeks ago we were discussing funerals and such things I am amazed by the restorative powers of tea.

I asked her what was her word of advice as a result of this experience – without hesitation she said, “Don’t wait, it’s later than you think. It’s always later than you think.”

Manifesto
