Nearly every day, you felt the need to put up an inner, protective shield, to guard against all the pesky and nagging troubles that life constantly throws at you in attempt to burden you with stress and subvert any good fortune that may come upon you.
You are however, a very strong individual, and consider yourself to be one tough cookie. You have faced hardships that others would easily give in to and crumble against, yet you continue to thrive and move forward with your head held high. Without a doubt, you remain confident there is nothing life can throw at you that you cannot handle and eventually conquer.
That’s who you’ve been.
That’s who you are.
That’s who you will continue to be.
…and giving up, or quitting, isn’t in your nature.
Still, there are moments when the Little inside of you becomes weary from the never ending battles, and on occasion, you find solace in letting go and finding strength in someone else. Your relationship with Daddy, gives you more comfort than even He could begin to realize. Never before had you trusted someone enough to lower your own defenses, and instead, letting him raise His protectively around you, sharing his strength with you and providing you all the assurances you needed to be content and happy.
Even though the Little inside you clung tightly to Daddy, and you needed to feel his arms wrapped around you tightly, protectively, keeping life’s stresses at bay, you knew in your heart that Daddy never viewed you as being weak. Daddy’s eyes always had ways of seeing your strength, your determination, your courage, even on those nights when you needed a brief respite from being the tough cookie he’s come to know and love.
(I wanted to write this because the picture helped remind me about friends/followers who face difficult lives due to health problems like severe anxiety disorders, cystic fibrosis, dysautonomia, and so on… you girls are TOUGH cookies!!)
I.. I LOVE this!! ☆ω☆
