It’s summer vacation for us. We have finished up school for a little bit and I am looking forward to getting some much needed writing done. I am also hoping to make my way through my towering TBR (to-be-read) pile.
The kids are making a fort and playing in it as I am writing this. I have fond memories of fort making as a child. My forts were of a smaller nature than the ones that my kids build, but the memories are just as good.
As an adult, my mind is often on the business at hand. Even as I write this, I am thinking about what I will be making for dinner, hoping that my husband’s day is going well, listening to joyful laughter from the fort and trying not to think about bills that need to be paid or the upcoming birthday of our deceased son.
Sometimes I just need a hug!
Now that I’ve said it, what am I going to do about it? Oh, I will keep thinking (or not thinking) of the adult concerns because I need to. But, wait just a minute…
“I need a hug!”
I did it. I got up from my computer, stood in the middle of the room and announced to my kids that I needed a hug. Lo and behold, I was blessed with, not just one, but a few.
It really works!
I am now ready to get back to writing and adult concerns.
But I can’t wait for my husband to get home…
