Comfort means different things to different people. We’re all unique in what comforts us. It could be a cup of tea, a warm blanket, a favorite hobby, spending time with friends, or a piece of cake. Today we’ll be sharing things that we find comfort in.
I’m a homebody, so home is where I love to be. I find a lot of comfort in my little cottage here at Chiot’s Run. There’s nothing better than getting back home after a long day away.
I love nothing more than bowl of soup and a crusty piece of bread! When I’m feeling under the weather a steamy bowl of chicken noodle soup is the most comforting thing I can think of.
A hot cup of coffee or tea and a good book are also a comfort. In the winter you’ll find me snuggling under a blanket in a big chair in the corner of the living room with a good book and a cup to tea. It just so happens this chair also gets a nice dose of afternoon sunshine, which is so needed during the cold dark days of winter in NE Ohio. I prefer coffee to tea for comfort, but I limit myself to 2 cups per day and they never really get put down long enough to get a photo of them, so tea it is.
Of course I couldn’t forget to mention the comfort of family, for me that’s Mr Chiots (and our pets). It’s nice being around someone that knows you, understands you, and has your best interests at heart. There’s nothing like the comfort of an aged relationship (for us that’s 12 yrs married 14 years together).
As I get older I seem to be finding comfort less and less in the things around me and more and more in the daily tasks here at home and the people that fill my life…and heart. Here are some of the things I’m thankful for here on the farm…
