My beautiful daughter and I had just gotten married and we were excited. Our friends had all seen the pictures of the wedding and reception, and we were ready to tell our story to the world. We knew that our story would be candid and real. So, we decided to make a video for YouTube so that everyone could see and hear our story, break down what happened at the wedding and why we are still married today.
This was going to be a short and sweet story. We were both quiet, nervous at the beginning but after telling a few friends and family members, we were excited and nervous at the same time. Our friend that wrote the story, sent us the video the very next day and was so excited! She could not contain her excitement and enthusiasm. The video went viral within hours.
Jake and Tana were not the only couple involved in this story. Our maid of honor, mother of the bride and groom and best man were also featured. They gave their own great testimonial about their friendship, laughter and love. Everyone was laughing so hard at the funny clips and they were so touched by the beautiful and touching message.
My sister was overjoyed because she had missed the wedding and the special events that had transpired. She had missed out on so much. It was a dream come true for her to have a part in someone else’s life. She shared the story on here for the tea with her friends and family.
The first reaction was “awww, I could not get my hands on that”. Then her friend said, “I bet you paid a lot of money to have it put on video!”. She laughed and said “nope, not really”. Then her friend added, “I guess you can see why we cannot have the video at the cost of our friend”.
The next reaction was “we could not have bought that at Wal-Mart”. Then my husband chimed in and said “You could have gotten it for next to nothing at a local video store”. The laughter was so contagious; they all seemed so pleased with the story and their friend’s gift. I knew they had truly made a good decision.
The story has gone viral. It is constantly getting shared on the Internet and getting great comments from across the world. People are saying “I cannot believe this, but this is my favorite story of all time”. Some are saying “that was so great, we ordered that video and booked that hotel”. They are having a great time because their story was so touching and so thoughtful.
This story exemplifies many of the reasons I like sharing the joys and happiness that come with tea. Tea gifts have a way of getting your friends and family involved and really experiencing the joy of tea and the different varieties of teas. You get them excited about something they love and show them that it’s really worth the try. Teas can be perfect gifts to get someone you know or to buy for yourself. Just remember the main theme, here for the tea…
Here’s another great tea related story. A few years ago, a co-worker and I were sitting in the conference room talking about the Christmas holiday. We were both a bit tired, but had a great Christmas vacation planned. So we were both laughing about how in the heck we were ever going to get through Christmas without candy and/or gifts. My co-worker stated that there was one thing that would cheer us up during the holiday season, a story.
I told him that I always have a story that goes with tea to help me relax during the hectic Christmas months. He looked at me with his eyebrows raised and said, “Oh, that’s nice. Do you have any extra tea lying around?” I thought about it for a second and said, yes, I do.
Then I got up, walked out the front door, and right before my co-worker and I were about to break out into laughter, I heard a loud thump downstairs. Now when I come downstairs to get the tea, the whole house is quiet. My feet hit the floor and I can hardly hear the clanging of the front door down the hall. The tea pot is on the kitchen table and there’s an angel statue next to the pot. My tea tastes good as I make my way to the couch to share a nice cup of tea with my family and friends, here for the tea.
