Windows 7: Missing "My Documents" icon

Win 7 64-bit
Missing "My Documents" icon

I use Win 7, and my "My Documents" icon is missing. I know the folder is there, but because I cannot put my documents there due to the missing icon, I have had to create a different folder called "Documents." But I notice some of my files go to either one.

Can someone here please tel me how to restore the "My Documents" icon so I can move all my documents there?
