6. Glad You Came
When I got home, my wife had made a pot of sphaghetti sauce and invited my sister over.  After dinner my wife said I looked a little down.

"Just thinking about how much my parents liked coming for dinner," I said. "They loved you, loved your cooking."

She hugged me.  "I miss them too," she said with a smile. "I miss your mother, and it's too long between your father's visits.  Not gonna let that keep me from enjoying the people who are here.  You shouldn't either."

Today I will enjoy the company of people who are around, even as I miss those that aren't.
