you capture::comfort

There are so many thoughts and images and people that come to mind when I think about the word comfort. What is comforting? An old quilt...a hug...sweet, encouraging words...a cup of tea shared with my husband...snuggling on the couch to read books with the girls...time spent studying the Word. All of these, and so much more. I've been thinking this week about what I could take a picture of that would really represent comfort in my life. I even searched for a thought provoking quote that would represent what I might capture. Then I found this quote and I knew just what picture I would use.
Cats are connoisseurs of comfort.
~James Herriot

Oh, I know, it's not thought provoking or seriously deep, but it made me smile. It also made me remember the warm, sunny day when we ate a picnic lunch on the front porch. The cool breeze and quiet conversation was very comforting. And yes, even Shadow found comfort on the porch with us. Normally he would have been watching the birds, but on this day he decided to lay on the floor beside us and enjoy the comfort of the sun while he took a little cat nap.

I love when cats lay on their backs like this. Mine do to. And isn't it comforting to caress their long haired tummies?
