”A little girl and her father were crossing a bridge.
The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter:
“Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don’t fall into the river.” The little girl said:
“No, Dad. You hold my hand.”
“What’s the difference?” Asked the puzzled father.
“There’s a big difference,” replied the little girl.
“If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go.”
In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond. So hold the hand of the person whom you love than expecting them to hold yours…”
I saw this today and though I had planned another post entirely, I believe it would suffice for what I’m feeling now. Trust is the back bone of all relationships, that’s what makes us safe. I hope you’ll all have a glorious week, I intend to.
Much love, always!
This is lovely, Seyi Sandra. I’m feeling quite nostalgic today for some reason, and this touched my heart. Blessings dear friend. ♥
Thank you Isabella, I’m glad you like it! Have a fantastic day!
Much love. 🙂
Seyi, I love that you said “that’s what makes us safe”……we all need to have that ‘safe’ relationship.
This makes me think back to when I held on to my parent’s hand because I was afraid (I wonder if they were too) lol….
I love it….
Check out my recent post if you get a chance 😉
Happy Monday 🙂
Thanks for your kind comment JC, as a parent, I could count times when I’ve been afraid and my children seemed stronger but that trust is still there all the same. I’ll check your post ASAP, I’ve missed a lot of posts, please forgive me, I wish I could have ‘clones’ of myself that would do some of my work but I can’t. I’ll pop over to yours now!
Much love. 🙂
the girl seem more smart than the father. hehehehe

I really appreciated this poem, and as I read it I thought about my trusting God and how He’s holding onto me. I was blessed and encouraged by it. Thank you so much for sharing it.
Your words resonated with me Jack, I’m glad you saw God like that, I always feel safe when I believe he’s holding on to me, and it’s something I enjoy and love very much! I’m grateful for your visit and kind comment!
To have someone in life that you can trust like that is a true blessing.
Thanks for sharing this Sayi Sandra 🙂 xo

What a lovely parable! Thank you for sharing it.

Ooo, I love it when a post turns into something else and a new post is formed. Great post, clever look at the differing perspectives.
Thanks dear friend, I’m glad you like it! Have a pleasant day!!
Reblogged this on My Blog steady as we go and commented:
What a good word. Thank you! We need “trust” in relationships today, sooooo much.
Thanks for the Reblog, sorry for taking so long to acknowledge it but I’m very grateful! 🙂
Beautiful story to share. Trust really is important – lose that in the relationship and it is hard to get back…
It is Christy, trust is important in life, in any relationship…
Trust, indeed, is the backbone of every relationship. When it’s present, the hearts involved will be at rest.
Love the story that preceded your line of thought 🙂
Thanks dear brother, trust makes us board a plane, believing we’ll land safely, it makes us eat in a restaurant, believing we won’t get poisoned. Living without trust is like living on edge* I appreciate your visit… But what about the story, you know what I’m talking about? Okuoba and the rest of them?
Aw, thanks for asking. My laptop and some other valuables were stolen a week ago, so that’s why I’ve not been that active lately. Next week, I will post the next installment. Glad you are still interested.
Greetings to your family 🙂
Oh my God! That’s awful!! I’m so sorry!! I hope you have insurance on the laptop and your properties…. I hate burglars, they’re lazy buffoons, they would be caught and punished, one way or another! Do be careful dear brother.
I can’t wait for the next instalment of the serial and I hope you’ll get the laptop back or buy a better one!
Much love. 🙂
