Is It Nice To Be Missed?

Often we say, "It is nice to be missed."  I started thinking about that recently and I'm not so sure.  If we are missing someone, we are usually feeling some emotional pain.  So if someone is missing me, I feel badly that they are feeling some sadness, etc.
Very soon I will be taking a trip, will be gone 7-8 days.  I know my dog is going to miss me terribly even though we have a house/dog sitter while we are gone.  Our dog is 14 now and follows me around the house from room to room or outside.  She does not like to be in a room if I am not there.  It really is bothering me that she will miss me.  It will not make me feel good to know that I am missed.   I couldn't help think of that when I made this card.

This darling image is by Diane's Dayream Designs.  Sentiment by Meljen.  Designer paper by Doodle Pantry. 
Getting back to being missed, this card will go to OWH so some child will receive it from a mom or dad who is missing their child. 
The sketch is an OWH sketch that Great Impressions is using for their challenge this month.
