A Strawberry Mug, a Green Teapot, and Other Happy Thoughts

This morning was one of those mornings that made me happy to be alive - to have the ability to think and feel and express myself.  I came downstairs to do my quiet time and decided I wanted to make some tea, and that I would use the new teapot that my friend Heather gave me for Christmas.  So as the water was boiling, I got out a mug to use.  I felt like I should be using a tea cup, ya know, to drink tea, but for one thing, I don't own tea cups, and secondly, mugs have more personality.  The one that I grabbed to use is a new addition to my mug collection.  Over the Christmas break my mom, sister and I went to an estate sales place, and I found this mug and had to have it!  It's old and cute and just perfectly happy.  As I was pouring my tea from my cute, quaint, little teapot I felt like I should be wearing pearls and a calico apron.  I definitely wasn't doing it justice in my sweats, t-shirt, and hair still wet from the shower.  I carried my tea mug into the living room and curled up on the couch.  As I sat there holding my steaming mug, all I could do was literally just sit there and be happy.  Everything was just perfect, and a certain verse came to my mind, Isaiah 60:5, where part of it says "...your heart will throb and swell with joy..."  That's exactly how I felt!  I was just overflowing with happiness!  

The teapot matches my new tablecloth and place mats perfectly!

Getting a little artsy...

LOOK! I captured the perfect steam swirl!!!

My happy feet poking out from my Patriots blankets as I read, journaled, and drank my tea!
