I saw you yesterday, and it was good for me, because even though you do not know me, I know parts of you very well – namely your ex-wife and your daughter. They are both dear to me, as they probably are or once were to you.
Many times I have envied you, for your first marriage, for your first child, and now, amusingly enough, for the fact that you are over your first wife and well into your second marriage.
You played with your son yesterday as your second wife walked in front of you both. Had she just rolled her eyes in mock exasperation at your antics?
You ignored her and looked at me with a sheepish smile and offered a genial greeting.
I know that your life is far from perfect, but it is obvious that you are happy. Thank you for reminding me that life goes on.
