There’s not much that I really want…
Denyse poses the question of what ‘I want’ for today’s #Lifethisweek.
There’s not much I really want, but the first thing that came to mind was HUGS – big comforting hugs from my friends.
The sort of hug that says, I hear you, I support you, I’m here for you and I know life is tough sometimes…..
With the pandemic going on and on, something I’ve missed is the casual hug of friends, shaking hands, being close to people without the fear of infection. And having to constantly watch how close people are standing, and being aware and on guard is something that just has to be done – but it’s not normal.
I wrote this in a post back in June, all about pandemic thoughts, and nothing has changed.
I understand the rationale behind keeping our distance from friends and family and am respecting the request for maintaining social distancing. But it doesn’t mean I like it!
Now I have to say I’m not the world’s best hugger, it’s sometimes awkward knowing whether to go in for a hug or a kiss or a shake of hands, but at the moment it’s easy – you just can’t do it! And I’ve missed it.
So in answer to my opening question – what do I really really want? Maybe if I’m being honest, I’d say I really want this all to be over!
What about you?
What is on top of your list of ‘wants’ at the moment?
Take care and I’m sending hugs to you xoxo
