Comfort for the Soul

When you find yourself stuck in the middle of a bad day, where do you wish you were?  When you get bad news, what do you know will make you feel better?


A Warm Mug of Coffee: Y'all know how I am about my coffee.  Few things make me feel better than wrapping both hands around a warm mug.  It's like my whole body sighs in preparation for the jolt of goodness to come. 

Comfy Pajamas: I've always had a thing for pajamas. It was the Christmas present I would get most excited about every year.  Sometimes, if it's been a particularly long day, I"m in my pj bottoms as soon as I walk in the door.  It's one of the few things I like about the cooler weather... I can wear pj pants instead of shorts... much more comfy!

A Fire in the Fireplace: Picture me, curled up on the couch in front of the fireplace, wearing my comfy pj's with my feet tucked underneath me, a warm mug in my hands. It takes a large amount of willpower to move. EVER.

The Beach:  It restores my soul. Like the coffee, my whole body sighs and relaxes when I'm there.  

A Chat with my Mom:  Which may surprise some of you because you know my mom and I make each other crazy, but even I have moments where, "I want my mommy!"  A conversation with her can settle me in a way that talking to no one else will. She's my mom. She's been giving me comfort since the womb, no?

Yes, Yes, Yes!

All of these things bring me great comfort too. I think you may have inspired me to do this prompt. I was sitting here trying to decide.

I love fires, not in a pyro kind of way, but in the contained, roasting a marshmallow or warming my feet kind of way.

That's all true comfort! .... For me:

A cup of coffee and a piece of dark chocolate together...

A good book

Comfy socks when it's cold outside

Looking at the rain or snow while everyone is at home and we don't have to go anywhere LOL! :)

Nice list. I'm with you on the coffee. I like fireplaces, too, but don't have one. (Besides I live in Florida.)

I heart coffee!! Cozy jammies are a must and I wish I had a fireplace! The beach makes me happy because if I'm there, it means it's warm out! I chat with my mom every single weekend!

Sit in front of the fireplace, with a hot cup of coffee(or tea for me), in my pajamas, on the beach = perfection.
