It's the little things that can really make your day

Last night my oldest son had class until 7:45pm, so when I got home from work I suggested to my wife that we take our youngest son out for dinner. We didn't go anywhere fancy, just one of our favorite local places that has excellent burgers. But while we were sitting at the table eating, my son held up his cheeseburger and said to me, "Dad, this is really good. Thanks for taking us out for dinner." It was just two sentences and a total of twelve words. But that simple thank-you meant the world to me. It was just nice to hear the satisfaction and appreciation in my son's voice. Maybe we need to go out for cheesburgers more often.
