Five Minute Friday: Comfort

Yay!  Its FMF!  Time to set the timer for five minutes and ... GO!

A warm cup of coffee on a cool spring morning.

His arms wrapped around me.

Laughing with a good friend.


Crawling into the cool bed sheets after a long day.

These are the things that come to mind when I think of comfort.

Burpees. (Who does those just cause they have extra time??!)

Public speaking.



... not so much!

Yet, I will do the Burpees because I really love sugary things.  I'll throw my words out into the blogosphere although it kinda scares me, because just maybe someone else can relate to them.  I will try to speak the truth in love because it's the right thing to do.  But math.  Don't ask me to do math.  Unless there's chocolate involved.  LOTS of chocolate.


And this book give away:  This drawing has expired.

  2. This sure blessed me! Amazing writing!

  3. Liv, you are from my home state...where all my family lives except me. I seem to have fallen out the nest and flown around the world, and landed in the heartland of the US. And I see you like the Fly Lady. Oh dear, oh dear, I am a failed Fly Lady fan. My house is clean but I can't do all her awesome tricks. And on a more serious note, finding comfort in the everyday is a gift.

  4. Yes, I do like Fly Lady! I don't do all of her tricks either, but some things have stuck! I love AZ! I do dream of traveling the world one day, though!


I love to hear what you have to say!
