Comfort, What it means to me. (5 Minute Friday)

Texas lake at sunset


I use to say this word meant blankets, cozy pajamas and cold nights with hot chocolate.

Then I got married.

It then changed to slowly dancing in the dark, date nights at home and lovely embraces.

Then I became a mother.

Now comfort has taken on an entirely new meaning.

It’s squeeze hugs and sloppy kisses, it’s coffee and snuggling my littles under a blanket, it’s beating my husband in a game of battleship, it’s long weekends outside with dirt and bikes.

Comfort is so much more than I could ever imagine.  I not only describes how I feel, but who I am.

I am now comfortable with who I am, where I am in life, and who I’m with.  My life is complete.

It’s amazing that one word could describe it so well.

  1. Beautiful words! Yes, I agree. Comfort is love from those who matter the most. The sweetest best part of life is the comfort we receive from those precious gifts God has given us. Happy Mother’s day to you! Glad we were neighbors over at Five Minute Friday:).

  2. I love your evolution of comfort! Sometimes when we hold on to what used to make us comfortable it has the opposite effect, but you capture how it grows and changes so well!

  6. Oh yes comfort is so much more, I think, than we can ever comprehend. I am just bless to find bits and pieces of it as I travel through life.
