A happy sight to see.

I'd gone and meet a close friend today, after my dance rehearsals. It was all very random, and we ended up chatting for three whole hours, when I was supposed to be there for hardly a half hour. But I guess that's how it is with  pals, it gets hard to figure how time flies away in the zillion things you need to talk about and catch up on.
So by the end of the third hour, I figured I had to rush home, so I hugged her bye, and promised to meet up soon. I left with a really happy mood, feeling good about something that was unknown to me,too. But somehow I knew I figured a way to make things fall back into place.
And I thank her for that..

So I was sitting in the auto, coming back home, when my ride happened to stop for half a minute in the traffic, and I saw two pairs of little converse worn feet in another side of a gate, sitting on something, swinging happily and dancing whenever the water sprinkler from the other side of the garden would wet them. I could tell the kids weren't older than 10... Weirdly enough,I didn't even see the faces or the upper body of those kids.. But it was something about how happily their wet legs swung together, reflecting smiles and excitement. I could hear the happy squeals, but before I peeped out of my auto to have a closer look, my auto whoomed away!
But through out the ride, and till now, it's just that one flash of an image that keeps making me smile.
I haven't seen a better picture of friendship before. I haven't :)
And I'm just so glad I did today, cause as random and trivial as this sounds, I know that, that image of those happy feet swinging together is something that I'd remember through out my life, and it'll keep reminding me of good and happy times I cherish today, and the one's I forever will :)

(I couldn't click a real picture, but this one from the internet is close enough! ;)

Keep good,you guys.
And stay happy :)

Much love,
Nil.
