Announcing the Union of The Princess of Daffodil and The Earl of Grey

A letter to a friend…


Dearest one,


I won’t bore you to tears with my recent woes of health issues. Suffice it to say the past few months have been a bit difficult which included a stint in the nearby hospital. I’m afraid I have given my poor husband quite a fright with these ailments, but he is a true gentleman who has taken care of me as if I were a queen. One could concentrate on the many trials during this period and how challenging the road to recovery has been.



However, this isn’t about what has passed but to inform you of the present. In recent days my energy has begun to slowly improve and short walks around the garden path have refreshed my spirit and body. But there are two things that have given me great comfort during my time of recuperation.


First, the Earl of Grey. This wonderful tonic has taken me back to days in England where cups of tea are offered for every occasion, times of grief, illness, or for a party. The bergamot of Earl Grey is particularly soothing and sipping this drink has given me consolation as if sitting with a friend.



Second, the Princess Daffodil. Her golden highlights and bright face can enter a room and cheer the most downcast of hearts. Her signal that spring is around the corner, that Easter is soon to be celebrated with Christ’s resurrection, stirs the desire for better health and days of beauty ahead.



I do believe these two should be married. Together they are quite powerful with their presence and could do the world of good as a royal pair. What say you, dear friend? Shall we announce this upcoming engagement?



Perhaps you have found other means of quiet pleasure in the midst of an illness. Could you share if this is so? I’m sure any advice would be greatly appreciated, not only by me, but many others.


In the meantime, I do pray you are well.


With kindness regards,


*** P.S. James and Clare Blackwell (“Bethel Manor”) are experiencing their own health and relationship challenges. Makes you wonder if either of them have thought to stop and enjoy a cuppa or flowers in bloom. Guess we will find out 3.29.17 when “Bethel Manor Reborn” is released by Crooked Cat Publishing.

    So glad to hear you’re better. I love good news! Take care. I agree. The Earl and the Princess should definitely wed!

    Grateful that you are feeling better, stronger and bolder, I hope. I missed reading your posts on Facebook, however I don’t log on as much as I use to. We are living in a society that seems to thrive on meanness and words can truly hurt. I love your gentle spirit it comes through in your writing. I enjoy sitting in nature centers or parks observing nature and all that God has created.
    Get out where it is green and breath in all the goodness of God. Plan to check your new book out, love mysteries. Blessings, always Elaine

  • Such good news that you are on the mend and slowly regaining strength! Soup is my comfort food when I don’t feel well. In fact, I usually keep some in my freezer for that purpose! Continuing to pray for you & a complete recovery!
