"I always have some reserve"

On Chinese New Year Eve, my wife and I had dinner with my family. We had prepared some gifts for the family members, but more people turned up than we had anticipated and there were not enough gifts. When I whispered my concern to my wife, she said nonchalantly: “There are enough gifts.”

“But we had no idea that…”

“I always have some reserve.”

Such wisdom of hers is what I do not have and what always impresses me.
