comfort folk

so, i’ve been sick for the past week or so. my sinuses have not been happy with the constant change of the weather. i thought i was getting better when i started getting my voice back but then that is when the coughing bug decided to visit. i was eating lunch at a friends on sunday and i was offered a cough drop. it was a wild cherry luden’s cough drop. i haven’t had one of those in forever. it instantly took me back to my childhood. i remember taking them when i was little. there was an immediate comfort that came over me. weird, huh? it really just went along with the whole environment that i was in. these friends that i was visiting are so amazing. i feel so protected when i’m with them. they have a way of reminding me of what i’m here for. i never want to leave when i visit. their names are matt and allison. they are this precious married couple who are incredible parents to their house full of boys. they have created a home for them. when i envision what i want my family and home to be like, i think of this family. i’m so grateful that God has placed certain people in my life so that i can learn from them.

wow, i definitely got side tracked with this one. but i guess i really didn’t. the cough drops brought me comfort and the carmichaels bring me comfort. what brings you comfort?
