Our friend Rachael invited us over for a cup of tea.
“Hello!” Rachael said as she welcomed each of us in with a hug.
On this chilly, bright afternoon, five friends gathered to catch up. We all used to work in the same school but Rachael’s path took her to a new job two years ago.
With chai tea steeping in our cups, we talked books, students and everyday life.
“What books have you loved this year?”
Titles rolled off of our tongues as we laughed and smiled. There is nothing like a gathering of kindred spirits. Reading connects us and friendship will keep us in touch for years.
Five hot cups of tea sat on the table, warming our souls. Thank you Rachael for the invitation!

I felt like I was there! You describe a perfect afternoon – talk about books, sipping tea with like-minded friends!
What a highlight after a day of teaching! Loved this line- “Five hot cups of tea sat on the table, warming our souls.” To tea time and togetherness bound by book blessings.
Warms my heart reading about your tea party. I wish I could have been there. Rachael is the best!
I love how reading connects friends. I also love your question as a conversation starter.
