Even his bad fortune, was received with a smile
A smile would be more than enough to exchange a warm greeting between them. Right after, he would sit next to his father, and get ready to begin with, his chores and make the day worth its while.
Later, when the moment for a break had finally arrived, they would then drink in the hot coffee’s warmth together, silently enjoying a moment of rest and their mutual company. Once refreshed, they quietly went back to their task of milking the family farm’s cows.
Many more chores and events filled those peaceful days of his childhood. Yet. those special moments, in the pre-dawn hours, were still his favourite quiet times and most cherished memory. They remained in the deepest reaches of his soul, as the happiest days of his life.
