Its the small things that make you happy , Yesterday my two daughters aged 42 & 45 spent the day with me and took me out to lunch as well as a shopping trip . To them it was a small thing but to me it was a day to remember .

If I can help somebody as I go on my way, the old song goes is true . Apart from the person receiving it , the smile it put on the face of the donor is payment indeed :>)
