    mood

    Is it okay to say " my children brightened up my mood"? Should I say " my children lightened my mood"?

    Re: mood

    I think you can say either "brightened my mood" or "lightened my mood." I don't think I would say "brighted up my mood," but I also don't think I'd find it remarkable if I heard it either.
