From February’s Writing Prompts, February 20, 2016
A blanket always warms you, most often in more ways than one.
How great is it to climb under that blanket in bed when you’re cold and tired? To get that chill out of your bones makes you sleep so well. The warmth and coziness…heaven.
Then there’s the blanket of security. I admit, I had that literal security blanket with me when I was little. I carried it everywhere I went. I had it for years, and it became old and tattered. It was time to throw it away.
As adults, it would be considered a little strange for us to carry around that blanket. But we all have one, if not the actual blanket. Security doesn’t have to be an object, it could only be the idea of something that makes us feel safe and sound.
We all need to feel that sense of security. When we lose that security of love or friendship, it wreaks havoc on our feelings, emotions, and our lives.
What is your security blanket?
