The Most Important Ingredient

"The most important ingredient in making a soup to cure a cold is love." ~Mama Hen
Little Chick has a cold. This weekend has been filled with the sniffles, ears and throat hurting and a visit to the doctor. Immediately I always make my home made chicken soup. Today I asked Little Chick if she knew what the most important ingredient was. She peered in the soup as I was making it and I put my hand to my mouth and filled it with kisses and then tossed it in the pot. She smiled and said "Kisses!" Every time she came in to ask if the soup was ready I threw in some more kisses. I even threw in some from Lolli, Cookie and Belle. When we sat down to eat the soup Little Chick said "Mmmmm, mommy this is a delicious soup." I tossed some more kisses in and she ended up eating three bowls of broth. When she was all tucked in for bed she said, "Thank you mommy for that delicious soup!" I told her that I made that soup with all my love.
