After dinner tonight, my mama Tica asked if we wanted cafe (to warm up; it’s been cold here). I didn’t need the extra caffeine so I asked if I could have tea. She said that she was out, and I replied no worries. All of a sudden, she says wait, I do. Do you like mint tea? After saying yes, she gets up from the table, goes to the kitchen, then asks us to turn on the outside light. She walks back in with homegrown mint leaves, proceeds to let us smell them, then returns to the kitchen to make…homemade mint tea. She is a gift sent from god.
