Sharing..A sweet story with a simple message.

Thursday, February 04, 2010

I received this email and it really made me think of SparkPeople. The wonderful gifts we receive each day we log on. How there is really a true melding of souls. With one goal in mind.We are all traveling different paths some fast some slow but all heading in the same direction. Each leaving a little part of ourselves with every person we are lucky to meet.

Hope you like this as much as I did. Feel free to copy and pass it on.

A sweet story with a simple message.

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!"

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. But 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.

And that's my prayer for you today. That you will learn to take the
good, the bad, and the ugly parts of your life and lay them at the feet
of God. Because in the end, He's the only One who will be able to give
you a relationship where a burnt biscuit isn't a deal-breaker!

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

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

God Bless You..... Now, and Always.....

So Please pass me a biscuit, and yes, the burnt one will do just fine!!!
PLEASE pass this along to someone who has enriched your life..... I
just did!
