A former office mate who just lost his wife this year is celebrating his birthday today. I saw his FB status and couldn’t help but feel sorry for him. I feel his longing for his deceased wife. I guess he is not ready to move on without her. But today, he wrote a thank you note to God saying he is thankful for his life, for his beautiful daughter, and for his wife – for the good 14 years that they’ve spent together as husband and wife. I knew his wife and I’ve seen how dedicated she was to him during those happy years. I remember her for being so sweet. If she were alive today, she would never forget to give him anything she could find only at Shari’s Berries or something that he deserves to get for his birthday. For now, I wish that my office mate would find the real peace in his heart while mending a broken heart. His wife, wherever she is, would be happy to see him slowly pick up the pieces.
