No substitution for the real deal …

I got some FaceTime with Sid today. Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful for this technology. But it always leaves me feeling a little bit empty.

I miss Sidney so much. Some days I am just heartbroken. FaceTime does help on some level. I love hearing her voice, seeing her face and laughing with her. But, over a year later, I still miss being in her presence. I miss her clatter and the energy she brings into a room. I miss sitting next to her and not saying a word. I miss touching her hair. I miss walking next to her and grabbing her hand to hold. I miss being WITH her.

So yes, technology is a great thing for which I am abundantly thankful … but it will never replace the humanness of just being together.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you find that there is no substitution for the real deal!!!
