Here's how I did it:
1) I put a smile on my mom's face with some gifts and a yummy lunch for Mother's Day. And yes, that's her asking me to call her more often!
2) I put a smile on my good friends' (Kim and Lippy) son's face by helping them build the most awesome pirate ship in the world... that I coincidentally got him for his birthday a few months ago. Little Jack is now and forever, well at least until he stops plundering, known as Captain Jack!
3) I put a smile on my own face by reading through my latest literary purchase: 'WICHCRAFT - the greatest book ever on gourmet sandwich making!!!!!!!! If you want a copy, and trust me, you really do, email my good friend/book dealer Janita here: email@example.com
