To hug or not to hug....that is the question.
So Sunday night I was hanging out with my in-laws after dinner. Its nice having them live in town with us and we see them a lot. I feel very close with them. My father-in-law jokingly made some comment about me not hugging him. I laughed and was embarrassed because I don't hug him. I asked if his other daughters in law did and he told me yes. Still more embarrassed I told him I wasn't quite ready to make a promise to change! I'm awful. I've continued thinking about it. I hug my dad easily. I hug my brothers. I hug all of my uncles and cousins. I hug back anybody that hugs me. I don't initiate hugs almost ever. Really only with my personal family members i think. So I'm curious... do y'all hug your father in law? Should I try to change? I'm embarrassed to say I don't even hug my mother-in-law who I love and admire.
