I’m participating in NaBloPoMo this month. It’s put on by www.blogher.com . The theme this month is comfort and the prompt today is ‘what would you rather have a soft pillow or a warm, fuzzy blanket?’
There is nothing better than wrapping up in a warm, fuzzy blanket. I’ve already talked about my grandmother’s quilt and although it wasn’t fuzzy it was warm with a flannel backing and gave me just the right degree of comfort I always needed. A blanket like that can be just as comforting as talking to an old friend. It doesn’t talk back and an old friend knows when not to talk back. It wraps you up in a hug just the way an old friend will hug. I know the comfort won’t last with a blanket the way it would last with an old friend but it sometimes is a good start in seeking comfort.
I have friends who are like warm, fuzzy blankets. No, they do not have a problem with hirsutism. But they have a knack of knowing just what to say and when to say it. They know when to stay silent and when to make you laugh. They are more valuable than any warm, fuzzy blanket and I don’t know what I would do without them in my life…guess I’d be really cold.
