I have been known to wish for "a couch, a blanket, and a boy", especially when weather is gloomy and I just want to huddle down for the day. The other day, my friend Tashina and I determined some of the awesomeness that comes JUST from a blanket. I would like to share those with you now :)
They understand that sometimes you need more than they can give, like hot cocoa and a fire
They inspire creativity, like they can be a cape, or a fort or whatever you imagine.
They don’t care if you’re sick, they will love you anyway
They nurture you when you are sick and you can’t get them sick
They don’t judge if the only think you eat all day is ice cream
They meet your needs in that if only your feet need warmth, or all of you.
They’re way soft all over. You don’t need to strategically place your head in a comfortable position.
They don’t judge if you are feeling extra fluffy yourself, they still hug you all over. In fact they really enjoy your curves
They don’t give advice, they just hold and comfort you
They don’t ever leave you for someone else. They know if you are away for awhile, it’s not them, and you will always come back to them.
Always ready and willing
Always keep secrets
Never jealous. No matter how many other blankets and pillows are involved.
They like to be outside and inside
Perfect for any season
Blankets don’t have to move when you’re comfortable because they don’t have arms that lose circulation
You always know they are free
As you can see, blankets rock my world.
