  1. These are all wonderful ways to spread happiness. You've inspired this, RR!

    We were fortunate to have many hands come help us when a waterpipe burst over the Holidays. I'm so thankful for everyone who lent a hand!

    Happy New Year (and sorry to hear about your Grandfather.)

  2. I'm so glad to see so many other families volunteering over the Holidays. As a Volunteer Co-ordinator for a Senior's Home, it's very heartwarming.

  3. oh you should make it a regular post, spreading positive energies! It's just so inspiring, as even little actions makes positive impacts. Thank you :)
