Some of you know that I’m a self-professed awkward hugger. To be clear, I don’t dislike hugging. I’m just … weird at it.
Clearly, I’m even weirder at it when I’m being directed to hug my parents:
Ever since my dad suffered his aneurysm in 2014, things have been rough for my mom. My and Melissa’s wedding was one of the few moments in the last four years that I saw my mom being visibly happy.
Maybe it’s more for myself than anyone else at this point, but I’m really wanting to hold onto those fleeting happy moments right now.
