“The greatest joy is in the little things. Smiles, holding a door, thanking someone, seeing grateful looks in someone’s eyes, taking the time to be there and listen. Remember also that no matter how much you have you can always spread joy and hope and thus receive it too. Children and babies spread joy without trying. So to you today I want to send my baby’s love as well. I wish you could see the smile for you. Heather and 2 month old daughter Dawn.”
