Simple happiness

Picture this...

A healthy-looking 70-year-old man without any teeth and not wearing denture, his back a bit slouched, with an umbrella hung on his left arm, and his left hand carrying a packet of grocery while his right hand holding the hand of his grandson.

A 4-year-old boy without front teeth, with a naive and mischievous smile on his face, pulling the hand of his grandpa and pointing excitedly at a rack of key chains.

"Look, look, what is that?"

"C'mon, let's go."

A few minutes later, they were at the check-out counter, paying for the groceries. After the old man had paid the cashier, the little boy carried the bag of groceries for his grandpa, and the two of them walked out of the shop, hand in hand.

This was what i saw in Cold Storage this afternoon when i was there to do my weekly groceries shopping. Somehow, i couldn't help but smile and felt all warm and fuzzy inside.

Yes, i've seen happiness today.


nice. and, ha, glad to read you had smile today :) cheers.
