Today Jamie Ridler gain poses a very intriguing, seemingly simple question:
Who do you wish to have tea with?
As I thought about it, I thought of people in the past who I might have liked to have tea with - people like Katherine Hepburn, Virginia Woolf, Mother Teresa, Corrie Ten Boom or Rachel Carson for example - To listen to their accumulated wisdom, to hear their stories.
But I realized that what I would like most is to reconcile the women in our family, to gather the sisters, daughters, cousins and aunts together; to share our hurts and feelings and wishes and needs; to expose the past and wash it away with pot after pot of tea; to cry and hug and feel each others' pain; to reconnect in love.
A Jamie says:
"You can be a maker of magic and a tender of wishes. It’s easy. Answer the wish prompt above on your blog. Support wishes by visiting other participants. It’s that simple. There is great power in wishing together."
