Melancholy

June 11, 2009 by Victoria Strong

I feel a bit melancholy today. I don't know why. I don't have any reason to be -- well, no extra reason. I just woke up in a bit of a funk and I find myself needing extra snuggles and hugs from Gwendolyn, watching her as she naps, wanting to take in all of her sweet sleeping snores, her soft skin. I so wish she could hug me back...I need it today. I know she wants to...she tries. I wrap her arms around my neck and I feel her little muscles working to give me a squeeze. I love this and I know she does, too, but today I feel a longing for a big bear hug from her. I need the extra love. I need my sweet daughter. I know she loves me. I know this, but I so wish I could hear it from her. I know from her sweet look and smiles and when I ask her, "Do you love Mommy, Gwendolyn," and her little coy grin as she nods "No" -- (toddlers!). But, I so wish I could hear her cute little toddler voice say, "I love you, Mommy." Maybe some day I will...I am hopeful. But today...well, I could use it.

Talk About It
