It's a lovely time of year to be holding a delicate tea cup and chatting with my teenage son about his day. It makes me think about Valentine’s day and the season of winter. It also has me thinking about his grandmother who introduced her love of tea to him. It is so important that after we search for cupid’s arrow that we honor all of our relationships - including those who are aging - parents or even your significant other. Media has a lot of great places to share that quality time.
