    It's enough to make her happy.

    Let's see here.
    A child gives her mother a leaf from a tree. It's enough to make her happy.

    I want to say To make her happy is enough instead of saying It's enough to ...

    What do you think?

    Thanks.

    Re: It's enough to make her happy.

    Some suggestions:

    "To make her happy is enough" doesn't sound right to me.

    Why don't you use that instead of it?

    Look:

    - To make her happy that is enough

    And also:

    - It is enough to make her happy / That is enough to make her happy

    But please wait for other opinions!

    Starting with an infinitive phrase is okay. The sentence is understandable. But I think you could better the sentence by saying: To make her mom happy is enough.
    'To make her happy is enough' is fine but you know. :)
    Just to avoid dangling modifiers. hehe

    I think "It" means "giving her mother a leaf from a tree".
    What do you think?

    Is it so difficult?
