Last night, we finally decided to go out of town, my eldest daughter wanted a different lunch atmosphere to celebrate my wife’s birthday. My sister-in-law, my wife’s siblings, and her husband joined the group, and her daughter who lived in the city with her husband was waiting for us at a restaurant on the hill with open views, with a pale sky hanging above.
Cool and fresh air enlivened the luncheon, which was filled with jokes and laughter. In her thanks, my wife could make everyone confused for a moment. “Albert and I love each other, but we are not attached to each other.” My sister-in-law momentarily grabbed my wife’s arm so she would be careful with what she said, but my wife’s explanation finally made everyone understand what she meant. A few years ago, my wife even cried when I told her that for the first time.
“We are always together, especially in our heart, on almost every occasion we are always together, but we must not be too attached. One of us will definitely go home first, and it is not wise to make one of us grieve for too long. Being bound in the world is not a wise way for us to go home later”.
I’m sure you know what my wife’s words mean, right?
