Some people say "Absence makes the heart grow fonder".
Others say "Out of sight, out of mind".
I say "Sometimes on my mind, always in my heart".
Perhaps I have the better end of the deal, being part of the 'away team', but I think Richard and I are used to long periods apart. We do try to chat every day but the time difference makes it a little difficult and we've gone back to the old days of sending emails. I actually like it this way. It reminds me of the 'early days' when we would trade emails several times a day. Although, the topics are somewhat different nowadays.
I'm not a person that misses other people. Usually, I do all my 'missing' before I leave. A sort of guilt laden missing that stems from knowing that I'm going on holiday while leaving my husband behind. It sounds cold doesn't it? Fortunately, Richard understands who I am and how I am. This must be my heart growing fonder!
