Tea Time Tuesday

Welcome friends, to my 8th Tea Time Tuesday! If you would like to participate, please leave me a comment indicating you would like to and I will gladly add your link to my post. As you can see, I have made a new Tea Time button which you may use. I have two buttons and either one is suitable.

What could be better than a hot cup of tea and chocolate? Please come in and enjoy some with me.
The teacup I am sharing with you today was given to me as a shower gift when I was a new bride. It is made in England of fine bone china, and the pattern is called, "Queen Anne." It has a lovely shaped handle and is adorned with a little bloom on the inside of the cup. It is not quite as fancy as some of my teacups but I rather enjoy my tea in a simpler cup sometimes, such as today!
Would you care for some chocolate? I am so happy you stopped by for tea and since tomorrow is St. Patricks Day, I thought I would bid you farewell with an old Irish prayer:

May God give you.....
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing for each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

Praying you will be blessed with love and peace today! Have a beautiful day everyone!
