So true! A lady told me the other day she loved my haircut. It made my day. And I think the reverse of this quote is true. I always try to not make someone's day worse even if I can't summon up the energy to make it (hopefully) better.
I tell myself this everytime my son goes into an insanely boring talk about Batman, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, or any other Xbox games! One day, it will be important, and he will remember that I listen!
