    It is a common way to say to someone that they have done or said something which has made you extremely happy. In other words - you have made my day/week, etc a very happy one.

    make sbís day to make sb feel very happy on a particular day: The phone call from Mike really made my day.

    Have you ever heard the phrases "make somebody's week" and "make somebody's year"?
