Jenna: "Here mom, I made you some soup. It has beans and tomatoes and cheese."

Me: "Thanks, mmmm, it has all your favorite things!"
Jenna: "But I ran out of olives. I am still looking forward to them being on sale."

This made me smile. Jenna hears me say those types of things on occation. Sometimes I wish I could just give her everything. But I would much rather she grow up with character, with appreciation for small things, with patience, and knowing the difference between things that we need and things that we just want.
