I am not the most emotional person in the world, but what you will see here, brought me to tears. The reason isn’t too hard to figure out, life is always going to be too short with the ones we love.
This past Valentine’s Day Chasidy Gwaltney was having dinner last Wednesday and witness something that none of us ever wish to experience, life after the loss of a loved one. Chasidy took a picture that is going around the internet of a widower sitting a table with a place setting for 2. Across from his is a bottle that contains the ashes of his late wife and as he has a plate of food in front of him, he breaks down and is crying, obviously, for the loss of the one he loves.
You know? We are all guilty of taking our other half for granted from time to time. We may forget to give a goodbye…
Even as I write this, I am having a heavy heart and I feel tears for this man. You can feel his loss. They say a picture speaks a thousand words, but I think this one says even more.
I make sure to tell my wife and children that I love them every time I leave…every time. I make sure to hug them often and kiss them, as it could be the last time we see our loved one again. I pray for all of us to never experience what this man is experiencing. But as we see it, making sure we keep this man in our thoughts and prayers that he makes it through the hurt and loss.
