Connection of Theme and My life

The theme of Leap Day is something I can relate to my life. Sometimes, we all affect the world without knowing it ourselves. We can make someone really happy but we don't even know it. One time, my sister decided to stay home and play with me instead of hanging out with her friends. That made me really happy. Another time, she threw a surprise party for me all by herself. She got up early in the morning, decorating the house with streamers and banners. I don't think she noticed how happy I was! :D
