He is still single due to the fact that Miss Right hasn't come along yet. Then again, he has also spent the past ten years, concentrating on his education and hasn't spent a lot of time looking for her. But when the time is right, she will walk into his life and he'll be smitten!
Today Jordan is in his PhD program at the University of Toronto, studying to be a Math professor. He is almost finished, and where he will go from there, we don't know yet. Obviously, he will go where the job takes him! I just pray he doesn't have to go too far away from home.
For my Tea Time post I would like to share a couple of special things he has gifted me with over the years. Any tea would be lovely with these accompanying it!
These gorgeous candle sticks were sent to me by Jordan about four years ago. He was away at university and went looking on eBay one day for a Mothers Day gift. He thought these were the same pattern as my Rose Chintz, so he bought them and had them sent to me as a surprise. They don't match the Rose Chintz perfectly but I really love them! Aren't they beautiful? They are called Summer Rose Chintz Victorian candle sticks. They are made of porcelain and the only other piece I have matches them perfectly.
The little china tea bag holder is of the same pattern. I would love to find a matching tea pot someday or even a teacup. Unlike the tea bag holder, the candle sticks are trimmed with gold and very elegant.I love chintz of any kind.
The birdhouse, he gifted me with a couple of years ago for Christmas. He knew I loved and collected birdhouses so he looked for one that would match my dishes. He's pretty smart, wouldn't you agree? They're a pretty good match!
This pretty teacup is the only one I have which is closest to the Summer Rose Chintz pattern. It was a shower gift once upon a time. Unfortunately, I can't tell you the name of the pattern because the only stamp on it says fine bone china and made in England by Royal Albert. It's a pretty thing, just the same! I love a teacup with a flower inside the cup, don't you?
I am the mother of three wonderful sons and I am so very proud of them all! We are a very close family and although we are spread out across the country and cannot see one another every day, my heart holds each one of them very close.
Jordan, although many miles separate us from one another, you know how much I love you and wish you could sit at the kitchen table with me and enjoy your birthday cake with a cup of organic Green Chai tea!
I thank God for you; for the blessing you have been to our family.
