      One day I was waiting at the airport in Portland, Oregon, to pick up a friend. When trying to locate my friend among the passengers, I noticed a man coming toward me carrying two light bags. He stopped right next to me to greet his family.
  First he motioned to his youngest son(maybe six years old)as he laid down his bags.They gave each oth-er a long,loving hug.As they separated enough to look in each other’s face,I heard the father say,“It’s so good to see you,son. I missed you so much!”His son smiled somewhat shyly,averted his eyes and replied softly,“Me too,Dad.”
  Then the man stood up,gazed in the eyes of his oldest son (maybe nine or ten)and,while cupping his son’s face in his hands,said,“You’re already quite the young man.I love you very much,Zach!”They too hugged a most loving,tender hug.
  While this was happening,a baby girl(perhaps one)was squirming(蠕动)excitedly in her mother’s arms,never once taking her little eyes off the wonderful sight of her returning father.The man said“My baby girl!”as he gently took the child from her mother.He quickly kissed her face all over and then held her close to his chest while rocking her from side to side.The little girl instantly relaxed and simply laid her head on his shoul-der,motionless in pure contentment.
  After several moments,he handed his daughter to his oldest son and declared,“I’ve saved the best for last!”and proceeded to give his wife a long,passionate kiss.He gazed into her eyes and silently mouthed,“I love you so much!”They stared at each other’s eyes,beam-ing big smiles at one another,while holding both hands.
  For an instant they reminded me of newlyweds,but I knew by the age of their kids that they couldn’t possibly be.I puzzled about it for a moment then realized how to-tally engrossed(全神贯注的)I was in the wonderful dis-play of unconditional love not more than an arm’s length away from me.I suddenly felt uncomfortable,as if I was invading something sacred,but was amazed to hear my own voice nervously ask,“Wow!How long have you two been married?
  “Been together fourteen years total,married twelve of those,”he replied,without breaking his gaze from his lovely wife’s face.“Well then,how long have you been away?”I asked.The man finally turned and looked at me,still beaming his joyous smile.“Two whole days!”
  Two days I was stunned(目瞪口呆的).By the inten-sity of the greeting,I had assumed he’d been gone for at least several weeks—if not months.I know my expres-sion betrayed me.
  I said almost immediately,hoping to end my intru-sion with some semblance of grace(装出优雅的样子),“I hope my marriage is still that passionate after twelve years!”
  The man suddenly stopped smiling.He looked me straight in the eye,and said something that left me a dif-ferent person.He told me,“Don’t hope,friend...de-cide!”
