Five Minute Friday : Close

I long to be close. For it to be easy. But instead every Saturday we find ourselves in a lurching dance. Trying to be close. Trying not to step on each other's toes.  The moments when I long to put my hand on her beautiful head. Or squeeze her 'til she feels every last drop of love. And she is silent. But longs for closeness too. I see it. As she ever so slowly moves closer and closer on the couch. Finally her leg barely brushes mine. Or she leans in. But just a little.
Why do we hesitate? A mother and daughter. We shouldn't feel the awkwardness of strangers. And yet we do. Because we are. Only 4 short weeks. And only Saturdays and half of Sundays.
I ache for the closeness that should be. I ache for her. I ache for me. I want to be close. So close that we don't hesitate for hugs. Or have to ask. Close enough to smile confidently. Close enough to love without fear.
Oh, I can't wait to be close.
