Yesterday was a tough day, I kept thinking about my dad and how I will never get to talk with him again. It was a tough day and I really miss him. I haven’t been very productive lately, no sewing, no crafting at all, due to losing my dad and just the way life seems to come at you full speed ahead without warning.
Today I really needed a hug and left the house without getting my usual hug.
What is a hug? I think it is different for everyone. For me its strong arms around you holding you tight, the smell of the skin, the feel of the cheek on your cheek and the sense that everything is ok and that you are loved and how nothing else matters in that moment.
Over at Joy The Baker she talks about needing a hug today, she says “I need the kind of hug that I imagine comes from the husband I don’t yet have. The kind of hug that you can completely relax into. The kind of hug where you are exactly who you are without any self conscious discomfort. The kind of hug that I imagine comes with familiar husband neck smells, synchronized breathing, and maybe a whisper in the ear. The kind of hug that softens everything in the world- that’s the kind of hug I need”.
I love how she puts that. Thats the kind of hug I need today too!
