My wife and I have been saving for a cruise for years. We were determined to go on a cruise in 5 years so we scrimped and saved until we finally had enough.
A week before we left I became very ill and would have to postpone my side of the trip. I didn't want my wife to miss out on something she had looked forward to for 5 years. I convinced her she should go without me.
I had mixed feelings when I saw her off. I felt sad for me but happy for her. I already miss her.
