A woman is like a tea bag. You never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water. Eleanor Roosevelt.
Drop it in scalding, unbearably hot water. Watch as the water leeches out all the flavour, all the goodness, and it colours and stains. Make it sit in the hot water so you can take everything from it. Squeeze it, wring it out, until the very last drop trickles out. And then discard it, when it has nothing left, and is of no further use.
Who am I? I am Robyn. Woman, wife, Mother, daughter, sister, friend.
And today, I am a tea bag.
