Seeing my older kids shop for 48 cans of food to donate for charity at school and church. They kept telling me how much more they'd like to give but they couldn't. I told him that aside from distributing the food to the needed through his youth group at church, he can sign up to serve the meal. He will get such gratification doing that. He made me smile and, once more, realize what a BIG heart he has. Now I'm in tears writing about him...I couldn't ask for more. Just had to share.

Looking over a cute little book that my 6 year old grandson, Gerald made at school for me for Grandparents Day. It contains a photograph of himself wearing an oversized straw hat.

Dina, cudos to you for raising such social conscious children. And I am just as proud as you. Thanks for the smile.

Lifesaver, what a wonderful lasting memory you have. So precious too.

Sattie, you make me smile every time I read your posts or your notes to me!

But my biggest smile today was waking up and actually being able to breathe properly thanks to the new equipment installed last night and the medicine from the doctor.
