Many years ago, when my children were very young, family came to visit for the weekend. The kitchen was a mess and the laundry was piled high. The kids and I were gathered around the dining room table rolling out play-doh, eating miniature cookies, and sipping kool-aid from dainty dishes. We were having a tea party!
In the midst of the chaos, my aunt looks at me and curiously said, "Marsha, did you know you have potato peels left out on the kitchen counter?" Smiling, I replied, "Oh, yeah, I know. It's okay, the potato peels will be there tomorrow but I can't miss the tea party - it's today!"

After all these years, I cannot remember what that bowl of potato peels looked like. However, I remember that tea party as if it were yesterday.
Life is short. We can't spend too much time worrying about the 'potato peels' in life and miss the best part. The party!
Give yourself permission to slow down, take a break, take a walk, laugh out loud, and spend time with the ones you love.
Take some tea time,
