A Pleasure to See

We went out to get a take-away last night (it'd been a long day for both of us) and saw something we thought rather charming in the queue.

There were a considerable number of children there (I'd say aged about 10), all apparently on their way back from a sports practice. Although they were loud and plainly just having fun they were:

  • well behaved
  • of both sexes
  • of three separate races.......and above all
  • happy and content in each other's company.

In an era when these things aren't taken for granted, we both remarked how pleasant, refreshing and hopeful this was. Quite made our evening!
