Have you ever watched Desperate Housewives? Ladies in that play are beautiful and tenacious.They teach me how to live a happy life. Gaby is one of the beautiful ladies and I don't like her first.She was a little peacockish and selfish.She was lonely because her husband Carlos was busy with his work.She fell in love with their young gardener.Then everything changed.She had to face all kinds of difficulties alone as her Carlos had got blind. After years of effort,they lived a new life.Carlos found a new job and got busy again.Gaby had to handle with all the household-including taking after their two daughters and a niece.When she was tired,she would gaze at the old photo with her ex-lover.But she wouldn't go back to the life before. When Carlos came home late from work,she was still waiting for him.She described her day to her husband.All things seemed to be trifles.Then she said words as follows.It's kind of funny when you think about it-my life.It just seems so small sometimes.I spend my days thinking about detergent and groceries or how I'm gonna get the spot out of the upholstery.It's not at all the life I'd choose for myself.But some days,I look up.And I realize I'm happy.I'm honest to god happy with my life. Tears came out of her eyes,so did mine.
