You can do better then that
Our family has started a tradition of, every other Sunday, feeding the missionaries assigned to our ward. It has proven to be a real highlight to our typical famil meals. I, as the family cook, try to go a little out of my way to create a good bountiful meal. Espescially since I know our ward is small and member meals are not a nightly occurance. My kids look forward to "missionary night" since I always try to include some type of dessert, also not a nightly occurance in our home. While driving home from church I was discussing the menu with Joey (my 8 year old). I mentioned that watermelon would be the dessert for the evening. He lovingly looked right at me and said "watermelon is good...but you can do better then that". I had to chuckle to myself at this remark. I am sure I have said these same words to him countless times, though not in this context. Still his advise is true, we can all do better then that with something in our lives.
