This is great story I heard today:

When I was a kid, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then.  And I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage and extremely burned biscuits in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for his biscuit, smile at my mom and ask me how my day was at school. I don't remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that biscuit and eat every bite!

 

When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for burning the biscuits. And I'll never forget what

 he said: "Honey, I love  burned biscuits."

 

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he really liked his biscuits burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, "Your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she's real tired. And besides – a little burnt biscuit never hurt anyone!"

 

You know, life is full of imperfect things.....and imperfect people. I'm not the best at hardly anything and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else.

 

What I’ve learned over the years is that learning to accept each others faults – and choosing to celebrate each others differences - is one of the most

 important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

 

 

We could extend this to any relationship. In fact, understanding is the base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship!

 

"Don't put the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket - keep it in your own."

 

God Bless

Dan

What a great example the couple in that story sets. Thank you for posting such a touching and truth-reminding story about the power of valuing a relationship.
