dear ollee n bee ~
oh, the days when we need a little comforting. i, me, you, they, we ~ everyone usually has a food they turn to to soothe, warm and make every little thing alright. for me, it is undoubtedly any kind of pasta. today, this creamy cencioni pasta from adventures in cooking would really hit the spot.
undoubtedly, to hear a kind, caring, reassuring word from a friend eases and warms our heart.
but oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak
fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as
one's foolish thoughts come out simply and safely.
oh, the comfort
the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person
- having neither to weight thoughts nor measure words
but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together;
certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them,
keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness
blow the rest away.
~ dinah craik, a life for a life, 1859
perhaps the loveliest comfort of all ~ a lullaby to take us away.
close your sweet eyes,
