I pause outside, just for a moment, as I do more and more frequently these days.
Peering through the window, I can see my wife and children doing the things that families do, laughing, clowning around, having fun, looking happy.
I feel a surprisingly warm glow inside because I know they are not always like this, that very often they are sad.
My wife, especially, reflects on what has happened, on what might have been, on what she clearly hopes might yet be again.
When I turn my key and step inside, the laughter stops, and the kids slip silently away to their rooms.
My wife smiles bravely, as she always does, and asks ‘How was your day, dear?’.
