Observations from the workforce, translated…
In our unit, there would be senior workers who retire every single year, they’d continued working for thirty, forty years, from young guys, into old men, their spirits were amazing. And, they’d gotten along with those who came after them really well too.
There are four retirees this year, everybody all felt unwilling to see them go. The dinner get-together is the most widely used goodbye we’d thrown the retirees, those of us who are still working offer blessings for the retirees, and the retirees gave encouragements for us, who are still on the job. And, the superiors would often ask the retirees what their plans were.
Chen said, “I want to spend more time with my wife, my kids, and help out with my grandchildren, and from time to time, I’d like to travel.”
Wang said, “I plan to take my wife abroad on a couple of trips, to see the world, to make up for the loss of how I couldn’t from before, then, I’ll do Tai-Chi, to keep my physical abilities.”
Chuang said, “I’d already found volunteer opportunities, other than taking my wife out on dining experiences, I will be exercising, and reading more too.”
Everybody seemed to have similar plans. In the end, Chang said, “The luckiest thing that’s happened to me my whole life is I have a wonderful wife, she’d given me two children, and worked hard, to raise them up, and had been giving to the family for the thirty, forty years on end, other than spending more time with her, I’d wanted to learn to cook, my turn, to make the meals for her, to treat her like a princess, as if we were just, begun to date, to give back to her, for all these years of giving to me, and my family.” Chang ended up, getting the loudest applause, he has the most heartwarming love, the most practical plans, that moved the most number of female coworkers.
So, showing love doesn’t mean showering someone with something, or taking someone out to dine at those high-end restaurants, traveling, or whatever, it could be as simple as helping one’s spouse out, to spend more time together, simple as that!
