    One small thing can make all the difference in a day.

    I was having kind of a crappy day. Work pretty much sucked today. Lots of aggrevation, hassles, and problems. Just "one of those days" that nothing went right.

    So, I'm now home and I'm sitting here in my den and my daughter (19 years old) comes home from her job, comes into my den and surprises me with a beautiful brand new pipe. Even better, it's a Meerchaum.

    I asked her, what's the occasion? She said "no reason, just 'cause I love you".

    It made me think. All the struggles, all the sacrifice we parents make for our kids.........It's worth it!!!!

    Suddenly, the day doesn't seem so bad, and all the troubles of life seem so small right now.

    Just wanted to share this.

    I'm not especially fond of Meerchaum's, but from one pipe smoker to another:

    Thanks all.

    I just was so touched by the gesture, I had to share it with you all. Yes, she is one in a million to me.

    My wife and I had her when we were young. But as we helped her grow, she helped US grow as well.
