"Hold You, Mommy"

Anytime my sweet Hudson wants me to pick him up, he extends his little arms up to me and says, "Hold YOU, mommy"!
I LOVE it!!!
I know that one day, all too soon, he'll figure out how to ask correctly, and I'll long to hear him say
"Hold YOU, mommy" again!!
I love the song "Hold you, mommy"
by Laurie Lovejoy Hilliard and Sharon Lovejoy Autry
I have it on cd and EVERY time I hear it I cry!
My heart is filled with joy, as I hold you in my arms, 
knowing all you want and all you need is truly found in me. 
God's precious gift of love is all wrapped up in you, 
I want to raise you up to love the Lord, the way he wants me too!
I'll cherish each and every time I hold you in my arms.
I know the days are passing much too fast. 
But when this time has come and gone I'll hold the memory, 
of you little arms extended up to me...
"Hold you, mommy"
"Hold you, mommy"
Safe within your arms of love is where I want to be.
"Hold you, mommy"
"Hold you, mommy"
Just like the Father up above, surround me with you perfect love...again
 When you fall and skin your knee and come running back to me,
I want to be the one to wipe your tears, kiss your hurts, and calm your fears.
When you wake up in the night and cry out in the dark
I want to hold you close, whisper in your ear 
"Everything will be alright"!!
I'll cherish each and every time I hold you in my arms. 
How I know the days are passing much too fast. 
But when this time has come and gone I'll hold the memory, of you little arms extended up to me...
 I know there will come a time when I won't hold you in my arms. 
You won't need my hugs or want them anymore. 
 Oh how I want my arms to always be a refuge in your eyes 
no matter where you roam, or the changes in your life!
"Hold you, mommy"
"Hold you, mommy"
Safe in your arms of love is where I want to be.
"Hold you, mommy"

"Hold you, mommy"

 Just like the Father up above, surround me with you perfect love...again

Hudson is so a cutie. Don't you just love that age? Lathan still says "hold you", and I never correct him....guess I just really don't want him to grow up. Hope you guys are doing good and maybe I will see you at the Y soon:)

I remember when they came and spoke to our MOPS group. I bought the CD too because both my girls said it (I didn't have Davis at the time) and he said it too. Haven't listened to that song in such a long time and I haven't heard those words "Hold You Mommy" in an even longer time.
