There’s nothing like a comforting and soothing bowl of homemade chicken soup. Especially if a loved one makes it for us when we’re feeling under the weather.
Last week, I was reminded about the importance of the warmth of home and family. I picked up my son from pre-school, who came down with a fever, and my heart sank as I saw him. I was taken back to the similar times in my childhood when I was picked up sick. That sense of relief after seeing a warm and familiar face instantly filled both our hearts. As I embraced him, I immediately shared his sentiment that soon we’d be in the comforts of home sweet home.
Doesn’t home become exceptionally comfortable when you’re not feeling well? It also feels SO good to know that someone will be there to take good care of you. And it’s the BEST feeling in the world when that someone knows exactly how to nourish your soul. #TheresNoPlaceLikeHome 🏠 ❤️
I placed Roy on his favorite spot on the couch with the coziest blanket, turned on a movie and started making his favorite soup.
This nourishing Toddler Approved Alphabet Chicken Soup is perfect to help fight off the sniffles. It’s also delicious and who doesn’t like alphabet shaped pasta?!😁
The thing is, comfort food isn’t just about the food itself. A cup of homemade soup from a loving mother to her sick child brings an incomparable kind of healing. There’s a warm and fuzzy emotional association which makes the food oh so comforting. There’s truly no place like home when we’re not feeling oh so good.
