Today is the first official day that The Green Tea House (TGTH) in Whitefish, MT is open for business. TGTH is not my business though I am very excited and engaged in making it a success. My friend, Vickie Kelson, had the inspiration for TGTH over ten years ago. Last year she really started raising cash and breaking ground. Over this past year there have many, many reasons why TGTH was not practical or viable. TGTH is a gluten-free, organic, vegan cafe and tea house in the center of Whitefish, MT. Nothing about the place is cheap or inexpensive. In the current economy it is not looking like the best time for such an endeavor. However, the opening day is proving that it is worth holding on to a dream even when the winds of resistance and frequent storms and obstacles get in the way of manifestation.
TGTH, is bright and colorful, the food is wonderful and I do believe it will inspire even the dieheart meateater to try a few vegan meals. For anyone who has discovered the importance of taking in healthy food that nurtures the soul, TGTH will be a naturally sweet surprise in a world too focused on fast-food, refined sugar, carbs and red meat. For me it is the energy of a dream that I tap into whenever I come through the doors.
As I sit here today with the doors open and folks coming in for tea, I actually believe I will write my book. I may just do it sitting here. The place is alive with excitement. Of course there are still many bridges to cross before The Green Tea House is solidly on it’s financial legs. That the doors are open is a miracle and reminder that we do live in a world of unlimited possibilities. I want to celebrate and spread the word – miracles happen when someone has the inspiration and courage to dream and stay with the dream through the storms that come with bringing a new idea to life. Way to go Vickie and all who have been a part of making The Green Tea House possible!!!
