When I think of the word ’comfort,’ what usually comes to mind is comfort foods, warm blankets, soft pillows, and cute babies, pets or animals enjoying the protection or shelter of loved ones. It is comforting to see other things that fit under the banner of comfort. Jodi’s exquisite bowl of soup set the stage for the rest of us to find other suitable examples for the photo challenge. The photos I selected for this challenge vary a little bit, however, I do offer up food, mostly desserts, our family cat Tangy, a few animals and more. I hope you enjoy looking at my contributions to this week’s Photo Challenge – Comfort…
“Comfort is the only thing our civilization can give us.” Oscar Wilde
Food is a great comforter and we reach for it for survival and to stave off emotional chaos and pain. Dessert works for some of us; I love macarons and a decorative sweet, while others reach for soups, savory foods or stick to your ribs meals. When we enjoy a well prepared meal, we feel wonderful inside; comforted, hugged and nourished. What foods trigger that warm hugged feeling for you?
“My comfort is that old age, that ill layer-up of beauty, can do no more spoil upon my face.” William Shakespeare
Comfort can be found in cozy moments of rest in a blanket or just simply on mother earth. We find comfort in snuggling up to our moms, or in a comfy position or place to rest. Comfort is knowing that someone, somewhere cares… Humans do it, pets and other animals do it too…
We all love to feel comfortable and welcomed. We find that when we relax and open our hearts and minds to our surroundings the chances of finding comfort is greater. It might not come from others as we will find a way to ensure that the comfort we seek is found or comes… Here are a few more…
