I was at a dinner last night with three other couples. The eight of us have been getting together once a month for a long time. We rotate homes. One of the couples is divorcing, and last night was the final time the eight would be together. The male of the divorcing couple is leaving California.
The host led a toast as we began the meal. She turned to the man who is leaving and said, “I wish you the best as you move into the next chapter of your life.” She then turned to the woman and said, “I wish you the best as you move into the next chapter of your life.”
It was a very sensitive acknowledgement and recognized the reality of our last time as a group of eight. Well done.
