Made Whole

Have you ever felt like something is missing? Maybe you’ve felt like you need some vegetables after too many days of graduation parties. Have you felt like you needed some time with friends after working or schooling for too long without a break? Maybe you just need more sleep. There are many times in my life where I have needed to make room for something that was lacking.
