A walk in the park

instant friend

We all headed over to Livingston park in Manchester this past Saturday and took a stroll around the pond there, while looking out for signs of spring and enjoying the cool, but sunny weather. Just as we rounded the last bend before reaching the playgrounds, this little girl, who was walking in the other direction with her dad, turns suddenly and walks straight up to Sofia, reaches out and takes her hand. Sofia looked only mildly startled, but happily held her hand and the two continued walking together and began chatting as if they were old girlfriends, suddenly reunited. It was about the sweetest thing I have ever seen.

Oh, to be young and not all chock full of self-consciousness. If only we could all make new friends that easily.
