You Are The Reason Of My Smile

It was an important meeting.

He was engrossed in the presentation.

He had forgotten that he had to pick-up his son from kindergarten...

When he realized, it was already late.

He rushed to the kindergarten.


His wife used to pick-up earlier.

He went running inside.

His son wasn’t in the waiting-room...


A frantic search...

He found his son smiling in the play-area.

He hadn’t seen his son looking happier ever since the latter’s mother had passed away 5 months ago.

“I’m sorry I’m late”, he said hugging his son.

“Mother had come to play with me!” his son said happily.
