A cool breeze touched my cheeks as I sat by the window, painting. The light outside the house turning golden as the day prepares to end. I turned to at look Babar who was lying down calmly on the floor. He raised his head, stood up and walked towards me. He wagged his tail happily as I brushed his head with my hands. I smiled, looking at his innocent wide eyes.

The pleasant weather lingered until evening. It lightened up our moods too. My husband and I kept on laughing over something trivial and silly while he ruffled Babar’s fur. Babar was sleeping contentedly on his stomach . The same lightness settled in my heart. I paused for a moment in acknowledgement. This is happiness.
