Well, today I got a real test of what comforts me. Currently at WDW and in between resorts on a split stay. Got call from home that a former co-worker died. Not unexpected but taking it hard, nonetheless. What I really want to do is bawl in private but that's not an option. When I told DS, she mentioned the comforts I listed earlier. Turns out, even with all I listed, I missed a few critical ones:
the sound of DH's voice and
empathy of someone who really *gets* me (like my DS)
Hugs L.K. Glad you have family with you right now. Having recently been dealing with loss myself, I know we need the comfortable with us. I totally agree with your list, and have been living it myself.
For my three comfortable things that I am grateful for:
1) My bed, and everything associated with it, especially my down comforter. Just something about being cuddled on my bed and having the weight of this blanket on me makes me feel safe and happy.
2) My wonderful husband. I know I have said him before for things, but he makes me comfortable just by accepting and loving me. I love to just be with him, and especially snuggling him in our comfy bed! 🥰
3)My home. I love that we have made our home comfortable for us, and hopefully anyone who visits us. I love beautiful homes, but ours is really lived in and not always clean. While I would love a housekeeper to keep it clean, it is just not, and it has been designed for comfort for my family.
