Ever have a really awful, horribly bad day? You know, the kind that makes you want to crawl under a rock and never come out again?

There are days when the kids are fighting, things around the house tear up (usually more than one at a time), and the every place I call puts me on hold for an hour. So after working all day long and getting absolutely nothing accomplished, I feel like I have wasted my time and energy with nothing to show for it.

You know what I really, truly want on a day like this?

I want my husband to come through the door and give me a big, warm, comforting hug. I don’t want him to read the paper first or get on the computer. I want his full, undivided attention.

And I want him to stand there and hug me UNTIL I AM FINISHED.

I don’t want a short, quick little embrace that only lasts until he is ready to do something else. I want to be the one who finally breaks the embrace, because that means he is there for me as long as I need him and nothing else is more important than me.

Nothing makes me more upset than needing a hug, while he cuts it short and walks off to do something else. (Luckily, when I pointed that out he stopped doing it.) There are certain things that guys don’t like cut short, so they should understand the concept.

Not sure if your spouse or significant other needs a long hug when you come through the door? Here’s an easy fix:


That should cover it.
