Daily Prompt: All It’s Cracked Up to Be

Today’s daily prompt asks ” Tell us about a time when everything actually turned out exactly as you’d hoped

photo (9)

This brings me back to the day I took my daughter out for her first actual hangout with a friend she’d known since grade three to Playland. Our local amusement park, It is rather expensive. But it was worth it in my opinion to see my daughter and her friend glow in joy, They had a great time together.

Yet, at the same time it was a reminder. That she was growing up fast and soon won’t be needing me to take her places, I figured I’d make the best of it by not only joining in the fun but also taking them to their favorite dinner too. Kind of a toast, to friendship and growing up. It was great, to talk to them together and understand what it is they want to become when they grew up, when they asked me what I wanted. I told them I wanted to be a professional photographer and take photos as far as the corners of the earth, they giggled and said I was silly.

It was adorable, After dinner I figured I’d take them for a little afternoon stroll since the air was crisp and fresh even for a hot summer afternoon. So, off we went with the promise of nice cold ice cream at the end of it. Then, the most amazing thing happened. The clouds begun to break and gave way for this glorious photograph you see up top, The girls were awestruck and I told them “See what happens when you stay true to your dreams? they become real. Just look at how beautiful it is and i’m taking a picture of it with my phone” when we each had our ice cream cones walking back to my daughter’s friend’s place, They were open to listening to places I planned to go first, It’s a day I’ll never forget. :)
