Big things are great. But sometimes it's the small things that brighten someone's day, often all out of proportion to the thing itself.

I gathered up all my pink plastic flamingos and put them in the flower bed by the mailbox. With the different sizes I've accumulated over the years, it looks like four generations of flamingo family have gotten together to say hi to passersby. It amuses me, and I figure it should bring a smile to the faces of people driving or jogging by. (And even if somebody really hates pink plastic flamingos, it'll at least give them something else to think about.)

Have you done a small thing to put a little cheerfulness into the world? Or, what small thing did someone else do that made you smile?
