Sometimes it is the little things
I'm sitting here this morning wanting to write but having a fair amount of difficulty coming up with a subject
Then as I was enjoying my coffee it hit me -- I'll share some of my small comforts that have added pleasure to my life
There was a time when I would have thought it too expensive to purchase the liquid flavored coffee creamers
But they are so good- I don't use them with my first cup of coffee though-- only the later second one
Only thing is the limited choices in the sugar free kind- I particularly like hazelnut
Okay this may sound insane but I really find comfort in boxes of tissues-- I keep one nearby in my living room- 1 in each of my bathrooms and 1 next to my bed
On to food-- I appreciate the frozen family size entrees on occasion- supplemented with unusual side dishes like veggie puffs- kinda like a tator tot
It makes for an easy -seems like home cooking kinda night
Also along the same food thing- it's amazing how much joy in a frozen cheesecake-- something we don't do often but when you know it's thawing in the frigde- well you can't wait for dinner to be over! One brand even comes pre sliced!
And here is a surprising one to me -- frozen blueberries! My sister Ruth brought me some after my hospital stay for diabetes - I thought thanks but I won't be trying those! Now love love love them- especially tasty with a little milk!
With my love of lists- I have come to depend on my memo app on my phone- just hoping they all transfer when we change phones-- I like to look back at lists-- great way to remember what you have already given someone etc!
Speaking of gifts-- a real physical comfort I have discovered is flannel sheets - Robyn gave me some for Christmas-- I have a friend that has always loved them
I didn't think they would be for me -- but oh man what a nice soft feeling to slip into a warm bed on a frigid night
Well hopefully you have found some small things that have become life enhancing to you that you care to share - just that little bit of sunshine in your day
