As a waitress and single mother, Olivia could barely make ends meet. What kept her going was her faith she’d make it big in Hollywood someday.
Most days, she made do with leftover food. Today was no different. She was ecstatic when a customer barely finished half of his pizza.
“What’s for dinner, Mama?” her daughter Ella asked Olivia as soon as she arrived home.
“How about pizza?”
“Yipee!” Little Ella couldn’t hide the excitement on her face.
“Someday,” Olivia thought as she was setting the table ready, “Ella and I will look back and remember this time with fondness.”
