PASS THE BISCUITS

When I was a kid, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now & then & I remember one night in particular when she had made dinner after a long, hard day at work.


On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, chicken and a few 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 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 long hard day at work today and she's real tired.
And besides... A 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 other's faults and choosing to celebrate
each other's differences, is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.
