Sources of Comfort

Posted by Val Fox on April 4, 2014 at 1:50 AM

Today's post features the letter "C" for comfort. We get comfort from memories, the written word, places, smells, music, tastes and activities. These are just a few sources of comfort. Do you have a favorite source of comfort that you'd like to share with readers? We'd love to read your comments.

Comfort is napping with a purring cat against your bare back in a warm bed with Barry Manilow on the stereo, rain falling outside, and a pot of vegetable soup waiting on the stove.
