It means an awful lot what you good people here have done. I've said before that I'll do my best to pass the kindness along and I will. Among Indian people there is a teaching that what we put out into the circle of life (biimaadiziiwin) comes back to us, so we must be careful that what we give out is good and not bad. In the dominant culture I have heard it as "what goes around comes around" or in the Bible the idea of reaping what you sow. There are many ways of speaking the same truth. It is my great wish that your kindness comes back to each of you many times over.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
