It Takes So Little

The mesmerized smile was imprinted on his face. His eyes were fixed on the ice-cream cone in his hand. Probably 3-4yrs old. You had to probably watch your step to not step on his little feet as you hurried across to catch your bus at the other end of the bus terminal. A woman, probably his mom, walked ahead unaware that the kid might not exactly be paying attention to which way she is going. It was that little smile. It would make you realize you too are smiling a while after it unconsciously appears on your face. It stays with you long after. Reminds you it takes so little to make a kid happy...

This post if for you, Lucky!! :)

Sometimes, those little things in life make you a lot happier than the larger ones. I think we shoould enjoy those rather than always cribbing about not achieving the bigger ones.

Jerusha, something similar here, ice cream does not make me as happy as it used to. Pay rises do! LOL! ;)

Hi Vikki, I have posted on 'negative spects of education' I would like your comments on it.

And why no new posts lately?

Wish we didnt need reason to be happy. Sometimes, all it takes is a smile to bring a smile on another's face. Helps me a lot, when I see a smiling face when I wake up in the morning, walk into office or open the door of the conference room. Makes life so much better!
