Tea And Sympathy

25 Apr

“Wonder why we tried, for things that could never be
Play our hearts lament, like an unrehearsed symphony”

-Jars Of Clay (Song : Tea And Sympathy)

Jars Of Clay. Picture grabbed from Google Search.

I remember loving this song when it came on the radio in the late 90s. A nice melody, and it makes me smile. Sometimes what we need to feel better when life’s challenges get too overwhelming is a listening ear, some tea and sympathy. Even though it may come from a stranger on the bus or a waitress at the coffee shop. Of course we don’t expect them to help us solve our problems. Just a little sympathy, compassion and maybe a reassuring word or two are all it takes.

Homemade Cherry Cake

It was one of those days when I didn’t have a proper breakfast or lunch. And I had wanted to bake something, a sweet treat. So I thought, hmmm maybe a Cherry Cake for tea in the afternoon would be wonderful.

It is a simple recipe from Laura In The Kitchen. A sponge cake with Maraschino Cherries throughout and slivered almonds on top. It just sounds delicious and promising!

True enough, it looked beautiful. A little dusting of confectioner’s sugar after it was baked and we have a winner!

I hardly have tea in the late afternoons. When I do, why not make it amazing? Who says tea have to be scones or cucumber sandwiches (I’m not a fan of cucumber anyway) or have to be served in a fancy tea set? Just a slice (or two) of the Cherry Cake, tea in a plain white Ikea mug and I’m good.
