If you haven’t been over to Cottage Blessings please swing by and check out the Lenten Tea post. This mom, who is so inspired and creative, developed a beautiful Lenten Tea Menu based upon chapters 14 and 15 of the Gospel of Mark.
What is even more lucky is that our homeschool group was over at the Cottage today for a Little Flowers meeting and the children actually participated in the Lenten tea and accompanying lesson. Usually Little Flowers meetings involve the girls while the boys organize themselves into a football game. Today everyone was involved. The children paid attention beautifully as the symbolism for each menu item was explained and the Gospel was read to them. After tea all of the children dispersed for some playtime.
It was nearly sixty degrees and sunny – our first real taste of spring here on Long Island and the children had a wondeful time. So did the moms. We sat and chatted and caught up with each other while enjoying the beauty of our surroundings.
A day at the Cottage – heavenly.

Mary Ellen, you are so wonderful! I am glowing reading this post.
Thank you so much for all you did to prepare for the tea–it would have been impossible without you and all those other other extremely generous moms!

Wish I could have been there!

I wish you could have been too Karen. That’s the trouble with these wonderful online friendships. I think we all need to move to the same town.

Yes … I sometimes construct my dream neighborhood, then sigh a lot. 🙂
