hello ppl, there are lots of times in our lives when somebody's gestures, words, actions make a difference to u..... ever felt genuiunely happy and surprised by such? Here's an example of a small gesture that made me feel good: A couple of weeks ago I was going on a trip. I was staying with a friend and we had to get up at 2.30 a.m. to make it to the airport in time. At 2.45 my phone rang and there was my 11-year-old son who had set his alarm clock to wake him up so he could wake me up in case I had overslept! Such a sweet thing to do!

Isn't that so sweet. He loves you very much. A friend of mine was having few probs. Her hubby was away on business and she was flat out with the kids school things like swimming lessons ect. I arranged a surprise with her mum. While my friend was at school her mum let me in her daughters house. I cleaned it thoroughly. She came home and burst into tears. She was so happy.

Aww, your son sounds adorable. I think that when somebody does something like that for you, you could respond by showing someone else you care and that way there would me a nice butterfly effect, hmm?

Oh so sweet ! I am really touched nd got impressed with your son ! These are some unforgettable momements of life which strums your heart's strings to emit some sweet pleasant music ! Wonderful ! I think kids learn these gesture from their surroundings especially from their parents and friends ! Many a kids they normally have their father s their role model ! In conclusion I feel that you also must be very generous, kindhearted, considerate and must be doing such nice gestures for others ! That must have instigated your son to come up with such a nice idea !

Yes small gestures are very important in such a busy and fast life these days. I also think that smile is the best gesture that is so easy to pass and yet one of the most effective one.
