It seems, she would prepare a cup of tea, a few cookies, a note, I think, and a single flower on a tray for her daughter every night. I might not have all the details down straight, but you get the picture.
I remember thinking what a nice gesture it was. How special it must have been to them both. What a lovely memory! A nice tradition that might be passed down from generation to generation.
Since my husband is out of town this week, I've been contemplating ways to make the time with my daughter special.
I thought it might be a nice way to express my love to her as she approaches this final year of high school.
So, I think I'm going to start this week.Tonight preferably.
As a thrifter, I have lots of little trays and plates, unique teacups and saucers, vintage napkins, an arsenal of small vases and of course, access to tons of flowers from our shop.
I have two weddings this week and I know what you're thinking, "This might not be the best time to start this thing."
But you know what? Life is short. And I don't really know if I'll even be here tomorrow. Do you?
So, I'm going to go ahead and make it happen this week.
I'll make tea for two, maybe put a quote or scripture on a lovely little handmade card and hopefully we'll talk a bit. Period. No expectations. No demands. No right. No wrong. Just time to be.
I'll let you know how it goes.
Do you have a little together time tradition with your kids? I'd love to hear about it in the comments.
