The Comfort of Tea

“The very sight of a teapot puts a smile on the face of most people. One cannot help but think of more serene and genteel times. From a whimsical child’s teapot to an elegant English Teapot, to collectible teapots that adorn some homes, they are a subtle reminder of all that is good in this world.” -Barbara Roberts

Mothers worldwide are shouldering a tremendous burden with steadfast courage and devotion.

Working mothers, stranded at home with school-aged children during lockdowns, made the difficult transition to digital schooling into a pleasurable time together. Then they often spent late-night hours meeting the demands of disrupted office life. During the pandemic, many women with and without children set aside careers to meet the immediate needs of their immediate family.

At some point the pandemic forced everyone to remain home for a day, a week, a month, some a year, and counting. The home initially felt confining, then safe and secure, a refuge with frequent moments of joy.

Family meals returned with everyone pitching in with preparation and cleanup. Family entertainment around the TV or games table and backyard (and occasionally in the great outdoors) brought relief and the reaffirmation that normalcy could return. Memories of COVID staycations will last a lifetime.

During these difficult times, tea’s calming effect comforted many, but mothers most of all. If there is something missing that will make her everyday tea ritual more pleasant, now is the time to purchase that convenience. Consider a bright teapot, a brewer, tea caddy, porcelain cups, or mug. If mom has everything she needs close at hand, consider a gift of tea-themed jewelry or a book to curl up with till normalcy returns.
