Comfort

Here are a few of my favorite things. Things have been a little tough here lately. Ben was gone for a week, we all went through the stomach virus, i haven't had much of a break. Last night i wanted to curl up on some seasoned, friendly older lady's back porch, sip lemonade and have her tell me that it was 'gonna be okay' in a southern accent-then proceed with stories of her trying times as a mother...but instead, i poured out my heart to God, sat in my own back porch swing, thinking of the words to a song i will post later and these things came to my mind. Thought i would share..so what comforts YOU?

sounds
of comfort:
the ocean
birds chirping
a saw in the distance (yes, a tablesaw)
a train whistle in the distance
the screech of a screen door

sights of comfort:
two arms wide open waiting for no one else but me
my hubby coming home from work
babies sleeping
butterflies
happy mothers

smells of comfort:
freshly peeled oranges
freshly cut grass
sawdust
wood burning heaters
hot spiced cider
fresh laundry

tastes:
ice water on a hot day
ice cream
hot cocoa
pecans straight off the ground
watermelon

touch:
sand under my toes and waves over my feet
finding Ben's warm toes with my cold ones
baby skin
cool grass on bare feet
warm towels fresh from the dryer
