What is the Meaning of the English Idiom
MAKE MY DAY?
To make someone’s day means to make them very happy, or to do something that makes their day memorable.
1. It was great to hear from you! Your email made my day.
You can also change the verb tense in the first sentence to Present Simple. When you say It is great to hear from you! the meaning is, “It is always great to hear from you”. Keep the second sentence’s verb in Past Simple.
2. It is great to hear from you! Your text made my day.
Because text messages happen quickly, it sounds better in a text to respond, “It is great to hear from you.” When you say, “It was great to hear from you” it is accurate, but it sounds like the message arrived hours/days ago.
3. When her grandchildren phone her, it really makes her day.
