“What makes you happy?
It was a gloomy Thursday evening. I was on my way to my weekly men’s small group. I get off at BTS Onut station to pick up groceries and I saw a man with a disability with his son sitting on the floor of the footbridge waiting for some coins from people passing by. I saw that they were very happy together. They look at each other with love, regardless of how much they have or the situation they are in. It was a lovely scene that wiped every negative thought in my head that day.
I learnt that happiness is not just a feeling, it’s a decision you make for yourself and for the people you love. We should not let our current situation dictate the terms, let’s choose to love and to be happy.
Tag and Hug your Dad!
I thought it only happens in Thai commercials until I saw it with my very eyes. No wonder the country is known as the Land of Smiles. #Thailand#landofsmiles #Thai”
