Give me my Comfort or Give me Death #blogboost

Comfy Blanket and Book - Angie

Today’s prompt from the UltimateBlogChallenge played off that today was bring your teddy bear to work day.  The idea was play off what comes in your mind when you think about an office, teddy bear itself, or idea behind a child’s teddy bear.  Those kind of things. Throwing those around in my head as I tried to think what I could play off and end up with a decent post with.  I decided I would go with things that give me comfort, as a teddy bear would a child.  Give me my Comfort or Give me Death I say!

There are quite a few things that come to my mind when I think of things that bring me comfort.  I doubt I’ll get through them all in this post, but I’ll get through the ones that pop up in the most in my head.

Stuffed Animal

Yes I have and have had stuffed animals that bring me much comfort when I need it or want it.  When I was little it was this medium-sized brown and white dog that I called Puppy.  Now its this long stuffed dog named Buddy, that stays on our bed all the time.  I might not always curl up with it to sleep anymore, but it’s there at times when I want it.

You can see him in the middle of the pillows on the bed there.  That was the best recent picture I have of him.  But I don’t try to hide him.  I love him.  Jason bought him for me at some point, I am just not sure when.  I know he bought me one when I went down to see him while he was in Texas because I missed Rascal so, but that was a littler tan one; which I also have somewhere around here.

What can I say I like stuffed animals, still.


Of course, Roxy brings me much comfort day in and day out.  I love days where she is super cuddle which is more now then it used to be.  Especially on days where the temperature is starting to drop and I have a blanket on my lap.  She is more likely to cuddle with me then Daddy for some reason.

Whenever she is cuddled with me, I just feel better, comforted.

The Ocean

I know I have stated this time and time again, but I get great comfort and peace from the ocean.  Just sitting watching the waves, hearing the birds sing, and smelling that salt air puts me at peace and feels like a warm blanket has been wrapped around me.

Wouldn’t hurt my feelings at all if each and every time we went somewhere that is where we went.  Yes I like the mountains too, so I guess that couldn’t be completely true.  The ocean is amazing and awe-inspiring though.


Of course, he is a huge part of my comfort on a daily basis, even if he drives me completely batty at the same time.  We have been together 16 years and married for 11 of those.   He is the only one I want when I am sick, tired, or just plain sad.  


Book and Blanket 

And there are some days when I just want to curl up in a blanket and read my book. Forgot what I have to do or what I should do and just enjoy.  Something about that combo of a book and a comfy blanket=maga comfort to me.  Throw in a heating pad too and I’ll be even more in my comfort zone.

Those are a few of my Give me my Comfort or Death – What are some of yours?  I’d love to hear them.  Maybe I’ll get some good comfort from hearing yours as well.

  • LOL I have stuffed animals on my dresser. I love them!! And all three of my 4-legged kiddos give me comfort. I swear they know when I’m down…it’s like they take all the icky-ness away! I write about the Ocean often…I call it my “therapist” hehe And I have a similar over sized chair (mine is a tan-ish color) and fuzzy blanket that I curl up with too. HAHA

    • The chair is actually at my Mom’s house, but its one of my favorite types to cuddle into too. And fur babies totally do know when something isn’t right. Always listen to them too when they are acting funny and you aren’t sure why, they are most likely telling you something.

    I love cuddling up with a blanket and reading a book too. The beach picture is so pretty.

    • There is nothing like cuddling up with a blanket and book, nothing. And thanks πŸ™‚

  • I may have confiscated my kids stuffed Olaf because he’s so perfect for snuggling!

    • Sometimes you just find that right stuffed animal and it just fits. πŸ™‚

  • Carmita Barnes

    I love a warm soft blanket as well and sitting in my comfy chair I call my evil chair because you just want to go to sleep when you set in it lol put those 2 things together and it isn’t pretty ! I am the same as you with the ocean or really any kind of water rivers, lakes any thing like that makes me feel happy and relaxed ! And of course Butch and Ruger too lol !
