The lovely senior of our Christian Academy surprised the secretaries and the kindergarten teacher with a beautiful and delicious tea on Tuesday afternoon! I wish I could adequately describe to you the love and care that Rebecca wove into this very pleasant and thoughtful surprise. Homemade scones, clotted cream, raspberry jam, and tea along with a
heartfelt card, made a memory of Rebecca that I will never forget.

Thank you, dear Rebecca! You are delightful in every way!

These are the best scones on earth - moist and light with
just the right amount of sugar sprinkled on top. And we got to eat them!

The tea was gently presented in a cozy
wicker basket along with milk and sugar.
The bottom of the basket was lined with
pretty rose print fabric.

The view from on top shows the delicious clotted cream and fancy
raspberry preserves, along with three pretty tea cups - one for each lady.
See what I mean about thoughtful?
