Did You Have A ‘Blankie’ As A Kid? Here’s What That Says About Adult You

I love everything about this article. I had “Silky Pillow” when I was little. It was pink and soft and silky and I rubbed it when I sucked my thumb. It was never taken away from me (thanks Mom) but at some point I must have laid it aside. At my bridal shower a couple of months before my wedding, my mom wasn’t able to make it since she lived 12 hours away — but, she sent a gift. After unwrapping her gift in front of everyone, I burst into tears. It was carefully wrapped in several layers of tissue: a gray thin fabric square with stuffing all around it, along with an old ribbon. My silky pillow. The note said “For whenever you might need comfort.”
