Missed – The Empty Chair snow globe

Missed - Empty Chair Snow Globe, Camryn Forrest Designs, 2012

When people write a blog, sometimes they pour out their hearts to strangers, and tell you everything about how they think and feel.

For this snow globe, I can’t do that. You don’t get to know who inspired this, or why it moved me so. I can only say that I walked into a room once and saw an empty chair and thought, “You are missed.”

There is an emptiness and an ache when someone you love is no longer there, whether separated by miles, misunderstanding, or another type of finality. My heart grieves for those who are not  here with me, but whom I can still see when I close my eyes.

“You are missed.”
