In Family

Yesterday, my daughter let out a shriek of joy, hugged me and then…broke down. I’ve never seen her cry this hard before.

Her younger sister joined the hug, sobbing too. My eyes teared up. So did my wife’s and my parents.

 It was a joint cry of relief. My daughter had her 10th exams results. She scored better than she feared. 

What a poignant moment. Those few seconds were special. I really wish that moment was recorded for my daughter to relish much later in her life. Much like how Mark Zuckerberg’s Dad recorded the moment of his son’s Harvard admission.
