Whenever I feel down in the dumps, I push a button on my iPhone and play a short video of my great-granddaughter Ruti meeting and feeding Rosie the Elephant at a recent Barnum and Bailey Circus.
Yes, it is great fun to watch her standing next to Rosie.
But the best part is hearing Ruti’s giggle as we first meet her. It was so infectious that all of the five adults standing next to the two of them began giggling as well.
It was so spontaneous! and so contagious! As we all looked at each other — and at Ruti — we all knew this was a special moment that we shared.
It was so simple, unexpected and delightful! And uplifting!
What a wonderful way to “enjoy the moment.” No words. Just that happy sound!
Thank you, Ruti, for giving us this unforgettable moment! I will remember it forever.
