Feelin' Blue Tea for One...

I have the blues today. I recently lost a friend and I miss her. She is on my mind heavily today, and my heart is weary from her absence. I miss her daily notes. I miss her humor. I miss her unexpected thoughts. I miss the looking forward to more.

So I got out a trusty strong stoneware teapot and brewed some tea, which always makes everything seem better. I only have one mug left out of 4 to this sturdy plain once-was-a-set-now-just-a-memory tea set.

This tea set reminds me of my friend and me. There's only one left now that once was a set.  Wonder if my mug misses its mates. Bet it does. Bet it's feelin' blue inside and out! Just like I am.

Joining the following linky parties:

Blue Monday!

Tea Time Tuesday!
