Holding Hands

 It was my day off and I decided to take Faith out to breakfast and to do a little bit of Daddy-Daughter time.

As we were walking in the nice breezy morning of 25 degrees Celsius, her hand was in my palm.

Strangely, it fitted nicely.

I looked down at our hands and a few questions popped insider my head.

When will be the day that she would stop holding my hand?

Who would be the next guy to hold her hand? 

It was a quiet walk and we were both contented, just walking and listening to the rustle of the leaves, dancing in the fresh morning breeze, complimented by the regular rhythmic plops emitting from her pair of little wooden clogs.

All the best for the marathon fund-raising! It's a great cause.
And what a little moving entry; it's a peek into the tenderness of a father's heart behind his usually stoic and strong exterior.

Marilyn: Hey, long time no hear! Still eating and reading at the dining table? Bad habit leh...

Anyway, thanks for the well wish for the coming RFF Marathon. Adrian has already started training for it while I won't need to kick start our PR efforts until much nearer to the actual marathon date.

Come back for updates!

haha.. I think I know why you say it's encouraging. 'cause it means that your daughter has a very high possibility of holding your hands even at the age of 20. Right? hahaha..
