My mom always gave me comfort, even when I did not need it; she fussed over all of her children with kind words, deeds and loving ways.
She was always there to offer a hand; whether you wanted it or not. And I try to do the same for my children and grand children. It gives me comfort knowing that I am helpful to my children; offering them advice when they ask, and sometimes when they do not ask; just like mom.
It would be an honor to me if someone said I was just like mom because she was there for her family; even if she was far away, she would call and say, ” Did you forget about me? I am your mother, don’t you know that you are supposed to call me?”
Well, now I am calling you mom; calling you from afar because you are in heaven and I still feel your presence, especially when I see beautiful spring flowers; your favorite time of year.
Pleasant, comforting thoughts
When I want to think pleasantly, I think of something that comforts me. The first thing that always comes to mind is the smell of lavender. Mom loved the scent and the color purple.
Lavender is such a soothing, comforting smell that I keep close by when I have trouble sleeping at night.
More Comforting thoughts
Another thought that truly comforts me is thinking of a dear friend. A close friend of mine has a comforting voice and is always there for me when I need to talk. She listens intently, not interrupting me and then she offers her point of view. I hope that I do the same for her when she needs to lean on me.
