Drabble #64

"What do you think is the meaning of life?"
The man looked at his eight year-old daughter. "Success. Everyone wants success, my darling girl."
"That's not right," the girl shook her head, vigorously disagreeing with her father.
"Then what is the meaning of life to you?"
"To be happy! Everyone should be happy about something. What makes you happy, daddy?"
"You and your mother make me happy," he smiled at her, watching her messily devour her ice cream cone. In that moment, silently looking off into the distance, the man began to see the world with a whole new perspective.
