Something Was Missing

This week something has been missing. Despite the adventure of moving to a new country, having wonderful co-workers and finding a house, that one little thing that was lacking kept niggling away.

It's happened before but that doesn't make it any easier.

You try to fill the void with other things.

But the sad fact is...There.Is.No.Substitute.

You try to do without. I mean throughout history people have done without.

But once you've HAD it, being without simply creates an ache that just won't go away.

*sigh* You try to resign yourself to a life without the one thing that gets you out of bed in the morning, keeps you going throughout the day, and sends you to bed happy at night.

And then Saturday I found this. And that delicate balance of life was restored.

It makes perfect sense to me. Kim, why can't the rest of the world be more like us?
