The first thing I thought of for Frank’s challenge this week was comfort food.
I think of my favourites, pineapple mushroom burgers, pizza, steak, cheesecake, fruit pastilles, doughnuts, cream cakes, all things yummy, taboo, and off the syn charts on the diet.
Too cruel I thought. A gain last week which I am working on losing, so I am not going to torment myself!
So let’s look at comfort from another angle.
Our creature comforts from soft loo roll to central heating and running water, or providing comfort to someone in their time of need with a shoulder, ear, hand or just a sense of being there. Several of my mother’s friends said that they just had to think about me and it made them feel better. I am a good listener, and will gladly give my time to someone who wants to talk, has something on their mind or is just generally feeling down.
The most recent is dear Maggie since the vet removed the lump from her mouth on Friday. It is definitely an improvement and more comfortable for her to eat and sleep.
With the recent pops and bangs of fireworks, she has been seeking comfort from both of us by wishing to be close. Of course she brings her own kind of comfort to us too.
My photos have all been used before, but she looks so comfy, bless her.
