simple things that made me happy…

I wrote this in 2002 when I only have my daughter Jasmine, then continued in 2005. I change some before upload this. As I read through, it brought back a great feeling about the good old-time, but also give me a sad feeling because nowadays I become intense and hard to be grateful for the little things like these.
