Dear Ruthie, just browsing on the site and saw your beautiful gift of a hug. I thought I'd send you one too fellow Aussie plus a great story of how everyone sees things in a different way.

This is a little story I read about two men who went fishing - a father and a son - but we could replace it with a mother and a daughter or son. The two men went fishing one day and came home empty handed. Years later, after the two had both died, someone found their diaries - and found contrasting entries for that same day. The dad had written -
"Caught nothing. Another wasted day".

His son, however, had written:

"Today I went fishing with my dad. It was the best day of my life".

Quality time had enriched his day and given him something he could be thankful for.

Isn't that what life is all about? You never know what the smallest deed can achieve.

Love and a big hug to you. Love Chris
