At work some of my little kiddos love to pick Dandelions and bring them to me. I always act super excited to receive it and they always run back to bring me another one. It has reminded me of this quote by Neal A. Maxwell.

"Our perfect Father does not expect us to be perfect children yet. He had only one such Child. Meanwhile, therefore, sometimes with smudges on our cheeks, dirt on our hands, and shoes untied, stammering but smiling we present God with a dandelion - as if it were an orchid or a rose! If for now the dandelion is the best we have to offer, He receives it, knowing what we may later place on the altar. It is good to remember how young we are spiritually."
