Comfort Things

Its a chilly evening in DC and I'm sitting here having a cup of tea. That is a very comforting thing to me. It started me to think about the things throughout my life that have given me comfort.

For me, when its a warm summer day, I love having a window open and listening to somebody mowing grass in the distance. I'm not sure why, but that gives me such a comfort feeling.

Watching the curtains blow gently in the breeze.....
Listening to the rain on the roof in the middle of the night.....
The sound of a pot of soup gently boiling.....
Sitting on the couch with a blanket over me, reading a book........
Looking through my collection of sea shells......
Petting a dog.....
Digging in the dirt......
Looking through picture albums....

I couldn't end without naming three things that are definitely comfort items.
Rachael has the snug sack.... and man is it worn......
Chelsie has "The Wheat".... and again, man is it worn....
I have my white blanket....its not so worn, but still gets the badge of courage

Things that give us comfort.....things that settle our soul..... things that bring us back to a place where we can take a deep breath and continue on......
