A photo a week challenge; Joy

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. – Thich Nhat Hanh


This photo was taken last July 2013, when I took the boys to a waterfal inside Gede Pangrango National Park, in Bogor. To reach this waterfals we should walk on foot as far as three kilometers, through the climbing track of Gede mountain.

My youngest son was complaining when we were on the way. He was exhausted because the road continues to climb. But behold, when we got the waterfal, he was so happy and straight into the river even the water was very cold.

I was instantly shivering when I tried to touch the water. But they was enjoyed it so much. In fact, many times I caught the expression of joy, despite they were feeling cold, like in the photo above.

Yes it was a joy for them, but for me…their smile will always my joy.

    Love the quote! The huge waterfall looks very fierce, but also very magnificent! I can see the tiny water droplets and the happy children just make the photo all the more brilliant. They must’ve gotten very wet πŸ™‚
