Sometimes we just need a little comfort....


I want my binky. I want TWO binkies. I want all my binkies and I want them right now. Give 'em to me!! We have all been there. Too many things going on in our lives and not enough of them on the positive side. Too much anxiety, too many bills to pay, too many sick kids or too much homework. We need some comfort. The vast majority of us can and do provide comfort to everyone else in our lives. We often provide more than is asked of us and sometimes comfort that is not necessary or even wanted. Why can't we do that for ourselves? Eighteen-month old babies know how to get what they need. As well we mostly provide for them and try to comfort them the best that we can. Why not ourselves? I am going to yoga this week and more than once. I am opening the expensive wine and enjoying a glassful by the fire with the dear Husband. I am getting up from my darn-hard writing project at least every 40 minutes and walking outside, even if it is pouring. I look forward to spending 3 days with family over the holiday, not thinking about or doing anything that is work-related. You, too, find your binkies! A blessed and peaceful week to you!

Oh, how I needed to read this! I definitely need to take more time for myself lately. Hope you have a blessed and peaceful week as well!

I love this post and especially that photo! I remember when my son was small, he always had to have two binkeys -- one for his mouth and one clutched in his hand! Thanks for bringing back such sweet memories.

That picture is precious!!!!! I do believe that I need to allow myself to have a 'binkie'. :)

I'm jealous. We have no wine in the house and no quiet time to stay by the fire.

I want my blankie. And a nice frosty margarita. Cheers!

I always want my blankie, my stuffed animal, my thumb and snuggle in my nice warm bed.

Now I'll add a class of wine into the mix.

My binkie is a glass of wine with a close girlfriend or a date with my hubby. And music, soothing, inspiring, uplifting music that speaks to the soul. Sara Groves is my favorite.
