Before Ada, life is pretty much the same. Same old stuff every day.
After knowing Ada...... oh my! Yes, same old stuff every day but with lots more energy and feelings and zest!
Gooly wakes and asks, "Is Ada waiting for me to go to school?" Meanwhile, Ada wakes and asks, "Is Gooly waiting for me to go to school?"
Both mummies nod their heads and wonder if they will ever get bored of each other.
Look, they go to school together. They come back home together. As soon as they get off the car, they ask permission to play together again. Totally inseparable!
Once, I said NO because......... (I needed to cook, I think). Gooly pulled a long face, looked out the window which faces Ada's block and sighed, "Ada~~~"
When he eats something - nuts or whatever, he always keeps some for her. He would put it in his pocket. At the rendezvous, they run towards each other with Ada shouting his name aloud, and him, "I got something for you, Ada....." It's like they haven't seen each other for years, when in actual fact, they just met half an hour ago.
We, mummies, sometimes shake our heads, roll our eyes.. and smile.
Knowing that he sayang Ada so much lets me know that he has learned life's important stuff - be empathetic, be sympathetic, be happy, be loving, be caring, be sensitive, and most importantly, be himself..
I don't know what cosmic power takes place when two strangers meet and become friends, but I marvel at its formation. It brings so much joy.
I know, cos I have a few pals myself too. *wink wink*
