One of her favorite sayings is "I hold you." She says this whenever she wants to be held...sometimes she does it for attention...other times because she's sleepy and wants to be rocked.
It's the cutest thing the way she says it. She's very demanding about it. You better believe if she says it, you're gonna do it. She takes no prisoners lol.
Sometimes I feel how she does...the world gets stressful or out of control and I just want someone to hold me so I can know that I am loved. Of course, if I walked up to Blake and said I hold you, he'd probably just laugh..but you get the jist.
We try to stay so strong in life. To be independent and prove that we can do everything. But at some point, we were all toddlers who just wanted to be held when things got tough.
I know a lot of times it's no fun to admit that we can't do everything alone. I myself can't stand to ask for help. I like to think that I can handle things by myself. The thing is...we're not built to go through life alone. After all, didn't Noah collect all of God's creatures in pairs?
You don't have to take on the world alone. It's okay sometimes just to give in and let someone you love hold you. It doesn't mean you're weak, it means you will be stronger than you were before.
