How do you comfort?

Everyone has their own style of comforting. Some people hug. Some make tea. Some listen then send a card. Some offer advice. Some offer too much advice. (smile)

Some compare whatever you are grieving about or struggling about with something they struggled with hoping they are being sympathetic.

Some take you out for ice cream. Or dinner. Or pie.

Some people go for a run, or a walk, or a massage, or a cookie.

And there are the comfort clichés: It will all work out. When God closes a door, He opens a window. There are other fish in the sea. Etc.

There are all types and shapes and personalities of comforting.

What do you do?

A while back I was having a very bad day. I wanted a hug. Or two. I wanted to visit with friends over a lovely steaming foamy latte. I wanted a pedicure. And a walk on the beach.

But this is what I received on my phone from my daughter-in-law, Megan.

How do you comfort

Hard to remain down after that, isn’t it? Hope it made you smile today regardless of the type of day you are having.
