I wasn't planning on making a post of this.

- because I first thought my answers simple and short.

I was thinking of comforts, as mentioned by the darling Tea Drinking English Rose.
Upon further thought, there are a lot of things I find comforting when sad or upset, which is something to be thankful for!

Firstly, having a good cry definitely helps if it is truly needed. In America I used to go for a walk if upset, but here it is too dusty or hot.

Listening to music like Josh Groban or the Fleet Foxes is soothing.



Sometimes writing...or emailing a close friend.

Cooking.

Tea or chocolate. Sad but true =]



hugs. they always have such a comforting effect.

this verse.

He will not cry aloud or lift up his voice,
or make it heard in the street;
a bruised reed he will not break,
and a faintly burning wick he will not quench;
he will faithfully bring forth justice.
He will not grow faint or be discouraged
till he has established justice in the earth;
and the coastlands wait for his law.

Isaiah 42:2-4

what comforts you?

This was really sweet. I am comforted by:
Listening to Yo Yo Ma.
Reading James 1:2-3
praying
a hug from Mom
talking to Jon
reading a good book
playing cello
ironing...yes, strange.
