I sat in the beach sand and looked at the children playing. I could see my little girl next to me, with rosy cheeks who was busy building a sand castle. She was shouting at her mommy, saying that she had almost finished making it. I suddenly felt that I loved everything about the beach—the mangroves, the salt scented air, the surfers and the children who are playing joyfully. It would not get beautiful than this, I thought.
After some time, having enjoyed the view, I got up and turned to leave – when a small wave crashed to the sand and came up to my feet. Then I noticed my child crying and I turned to see the sand castle which had got destroyed by the wave. I immediately knew what I had to do. I saw a small toy store by the beach. I ran and bought her a big toy castle, which I believed would delight her. I gave it to my daughter and said “Keep this one safe”. My girl’s face brightened up. She took the gift, hugging and thanking me. By gifting a toy to my little girl, I knew that I had begun such a lovely day!
