His Hand in Mine



It doesn't matter where we are...

:: a nature walk at home

:: an adventure walk on the hiking trails

:: at the grocery store

:: at the market

just about anywhere we go, the same little conversation starts each journey...

Reece: "Hold my hand."

Me: "Always."

I do hope he always wants to hold my hand, but I know the day will come when he won't.

So for now I will keep smiling each time we share this little conversation. I will hold on tight each time he puts his hand in mine. I will delight in the joy we both feel as we experience life, hand in hand.

  1. I remember my father holding my hand and him telling me that someday I wouldn't want to do that anymore, and me thinking - never! Lovely post.

  6. I love holding little hands! It took us a long time to work up to hand holding. And recently kiss and hugs have been accepted as well!

  8. Good news, I am still having this conversation with my 6 year old, but as he says, "Now I hold YOUR hand Mama instead of you holding mine." It just gets sweeter and sweeter. Enjoy it!!

  10. So precious. My little guy reaches up without looking and I'm so glad that I'm there to take his hand. It makes my heart melt to know that he doesn't even need to look, he knows mama will be there. Let's hope this never goes away, ok? :)

  11. So very, very sweet.
    All mama's go through such similar depths of feeling.
    Enjoying each fleeting moment.
    I trust knowing that each stage is meaningful, and ultimately, we always hold them.
