My first grandchild: Anthony Savage

As a father, I realized very early that it is not only getting the best job, house, car etc; makes one happy or successful in life, but to get married and settle. Many acknowledge marriage as a form of trap, unity without comfort or freedom. I don’t see it that way. I see marriage as a bond of life-long commitment and sharing responsibilities, which enhance the success of both partners.

I know perfectly well what my wife has done for me in times of difficulty, uncertainty and when sick. Like Florence Nightingale, she takes care of me and does what I haven’t even requested her to do. I have really enjoyed a happy successful marriage over two decades, because both respect and trust ourselves.

Thus; when my elder son said to me “Daddy I will be getting married soon, I was engulfed with joy, knowing that he has made a good decision, a decision which will keep him sincere, upright and responsible. I witnessed the day of their wedding with emotions, happiness and tears of joy. The two were joined as man and wife, as they exchanged vows and kissed each other.

However, my life changed dramatically six weeks ago, when my first grandchild was delivered. I am very happy indeed. I give thanks and praises to God, who makes things possible.  I wish my son and his wife a happy successful marriage. My advice to them is to respect, love and trust each other and to solve every problem they faced amicably. That’s the essence and qualities that lead to a successful marriage.

How Do You Feel When Your Pet Dies After 22 Years?

One may find it difficult to understand the reason why the death of a pet, sometimes affects the owner emotionally, physically and psychologically. Pets create special bond between the owner and the animal. That bond even becomes stronger when the animal is the only friend the owner has. The way some animal lovers love their pets is amazing. 

That’s the situation of my work mate. She was twenty-three when she had her first cat, since then they have lived happily as a family for twenty-two years. Her cat was sick and the veterinarian told her that the cat wouldn’t live long, due the poor and fragile condition. I think the sickness has something to do with old age.

The bad news affected Lucy emotionally for almost two weeks after visiting the veterinary. Just last month her cat passed away peacefully in its sleep. She was completely distraught and helpless that her ex-husband is now keeping companionship with her.

According Austrian researchers, the relationship between pet owners and their dogs is very similar to the deep connection between young children and their parents. Some pet owners never recover after the death of their beloved pets. I wasn’t surprised when a woman left a will of $1.5 million dollars for her pet in New Your City, when she has children.
