My special place


When I think of all the things that bring me comfort, my BED always comes to mind. Days when I am feeling lazy or feeling blah, I can always get into my King Size Sleigh Bed and everything seems to start looking better. She has never let me down. I love crawling in my bed to get away from it at all, so that is one of the places that brings me comfort.

Another place is my tub! I know this may sound crazy, but it is. Sometimes a hot bath is the remedy to everything!

Another place is my living room on my leather sofa....This is a place I kick back and relax with the chidlren. REad my children stories. Grab my blanket to take a mid-afternoon nap. Sit back and drink a cup of tea and indulge myself with a good book. I love my couch!

Another place that brings me peace is not in my home, but a home where I lived. My mom's house. She has a beautiful home on the lake (pictured above). I always go and walk along the shore, to feel one with nature. I feel close to God, when I am there. It is there where I can just let go and let my thoughts run wild. I feel so at home there. I can think with an open mind and an open heart whenever I am at the lake. It brings me peace and comfort.

It's the small things in this world that make the difference. Taking a nap on your favorite sofa in the middle of the day, laying in your bed watching a good chick flick, or just cruising along the lake. It's always good to know what your comfort zone is.....Great topic again Bonnie Rose.
