Who will bring her a cup of tea?
That question was repeated multiple times as my aunt fretted about her daughter not having children or grandchildren to help her as she aged.
I have pondered my aunt’s concern since our conversation. Stores will deliver groceries. Restaurants will deliver meals. Ambulances will transport people to the hospital. Taxis or Uber will make errands possible.
But who will bring a cup of tea? Usually, intimate family and friends. Our expressions of love and concern may be the simplest acts.
Thank you to all who have brought me cups of tea over the years.
Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward.Psalm 127:3
