Comfort-Writer's Workshop

For this week's Mama Kat's workshop, I chose prompt #3:  List 5 things that bring you comfort.

I especially love Trader Joe's mix in a canister, it is so rich and creamy but full of sugar so, I have moved to tea bags with sugarfree vanilla creamer.  It is a special treat, and especially comforting in this time of year.

I love a good soothing massage that makes you feel wonderful hours after.  I love the arm and leg massage that I have when I get a mani/pedi.  I even feel comforted when I get my hair done.  The shampooing, hair cut and blow-out are very relaxing to me.

They can tell when you are down and cuddle even closer.  They are so funny they make me smile and laugh all the time, raising my spirits daily.  They encourage me to exercise, because they are such fun when they get to go for a walk.

I am comforted knowing that Mr BC and I created such wonderful and imaginative kids.  That we gave DD1 the skills to be such a wonderful parent (along with SIL) to our grandsons, Лука and Caшa.  They are wonderful, funny and smart boys who can make me smile every day.

What a comfort it is to have the love of a good man.  He is truly my best friend.  He can jolly me out of a funk and he can make my day when he says something complimentary without having to fish for it. We have been together so long that we do finish each others thoughts.


  1. All comforting things to have. :)

  2. My furry babies bring me so many smiles too and the massage? I am so long overdue...Sigh.

  3. Great list! Furry kids...I need a couple of those! ;)

  4. Personally I enjoy massages too....however that's what gives me and my family extra money...I'M A MASSAGE THERAPIST!!! HOwever I'm one of those ones who doesn't make you feel all that great during the session, I work more in the medical side of it, helping injuries and such...LOL...none the less, I love that people find the work comforting!!

  5. A Trader Joe's just opened here! I may have to go just to get some of that chai tea.

    I miss having a dog!

  6. I love your list, well all but the massages. Thinking about someone I don't know rub me gives me the willies! :)

  7. What a great list! I love chai, too!

  8. Wonderful list. I find it very comforting when my hair stylist washes my hair and blow dries it, too. I often fall asleep which is a little embarrassing ...
