Cup of Tea

Cup of Tea

This story is too funny, so I just had to share it with you…

One day my mother was out and my dad was in charge of me.

I was maybe 2 1/2 years old. Someone had given me a little ‘tea set’ as a gift and it was one of my favorite toys.

Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought Daddy a little cup of ‘tea’, which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home.

My Dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was ‘just the cutest thing!’ My Mom waited, and sure enough, here I come down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy and she watches him drink it up.

Then she says, (as only a mother would know…)

‘Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach water is the toilet?

That is really funny…and I'm not sure what it says about me that I just barely guessed the punchline. I just thought it was cute your dad was playing tea with you:)

Hey Gal! Thanks for the comment last night. Sorry I'm just now getting back to you. I tried this morning about 7:30, but the Satellite was so slow I couldn't get on, I tried this evening, same problem, so I decided to wait til I got home from church and watched my "recorded American Idol", and washed my dishes. Guess what! Got on first try! As far as replying to your comment, I know what you mean. I go through the same thing. Kinda like when I "think" it was King Soloman but I'm not possitive. Anyway this woman kept coming in and bugging him about a problem she was having and he kept dismissing her. finally because of her persistance he gave in and gave her what she wanted. God does us the same way, and sometimes (more times than not, at least for me) it backfires. He always knows what we need better than we do, and sometimes what we want counteracts what we need. Believe me I've had first hand experience! LOL! Well, guess I'd better get going on my post. I'm running WAY behind.

Love ya Bunches!
