And of all who offer you friendship,
Let me be ever the first, the truest, the nearest and dearest."
(Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)
One of my most favorite of all pasttimes, is the happiness of sharing a nice pot of tea, and some baked goodies, with one or two special friends. We share the stories of the day, sometimes full of joy and laughter, and sometimes of grief and sorrow. But when we part, each of us has experienced the lifting of spirits, and the cherished joy of true and treasured friendship.
Yesterday, I was in a baking mood, and made some cranberry bread and corn muffins, ready for a special friend to drop by for a "pot of tea". Naughty, naughty, but oh so yummy!
