Mabel held her wailing friend strongly as the casket was lowered into the freshly dug grave.

Mabel’s friend was screaming “My husband don’t leave me, please, don’t leave me!”

The children were screaming too. Losing a father is not an easy thing.

If not for Mabel, the friend would have thrown herself into the grave to be buried with her husband who died of suicide. Because, the husband found no meaning in life and he killed himself.

As Mabel watched the spectacle of broken hearts crying for a man who will never ever come back, Manel remembered her husband.

Mabel remembered how much she takes her husband for granted.

How she talks to him like a small useless child however she pleases.

How she gives him prolonged silent treatment over issues they can easily resolve.

How she denied him sex many times. And she asked herself “What if it was my husband that is buried today how would I feel?” Susan thought.

Mabel remembered that she argued with her husband and he left the house with tension between them just because after all these years, he still leaves his plate in the living room instead of taking it to the sink after eating.

“God forbid that my husband die, but what if as my husband went out in anger and never returns and passes away, is this the last memory I would like my husband and I to have?” She thought again.

Mabel began to remember all the wonderful things her husband has done in the past, which she never taught of before except complaining.

Now, in her heart, she began to appreciate him for all his efforts no matter how small it was.

At that moment, she realized her areas of improvement, and said to herself “there is no other man I would rather share my life with than my loving husband.”

She thought of life without him and it scared her. And said, “I would rather have disagreements with my loving husband than to lose him to death. I prefer his sense of humour and laughter than to cry for losing him.”

Since then, both Mabel and her husband have been a stronger and more loving couple after realizing that tomorrow is not guaranteed.
