Tea Time for an Aching Heart

Two dear friends of mine have lost sons, it was 14 years ago for Janet and a few months ago for Virginia. We all love tea time and in December Janet suggested that we visit Virginia in early January after the whirlwind holidays. It was a wonderful suggestion. We told Virginia all she had to do was boil a pot of water.

Janet and I planned and brought everything from linens to tea settings and food. First course was savory tea sandwiches.

 Second course was scones, lemon curd and a mock Devonshire cream.

Third course was sweets and strawberries.

The sweetest thing was having two dear friends with aching hearts and time together.


  1. What a thoughtful and lovely way to comfort the hearts of friends. Everything looks so pretty and tasty, but I imagine the gift of friendship meant the most of all. Sounds like a very sweet time.

  2. It was a very special tea time and Virginia felt loved. God's love was there and helped us all.
