Nice one to share with everyone. Read On, It’s Beautiful.
“When I was a kid, my Mom liked to cook food & then I remember she used to cook for us.
One night in particular when she had made dinner after a long hard day’s work, Mom placed a plate of bread, jam and extremely burnt toast in front of my Dad.
I was waiting to see if anyone noticed the burnt toast.
But Dad just ate his toast and asked me how was my day was at school.
I don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember I heard Mom apologising to Dad for the burnt toast.
And I’ll never forget what he said: “Honey, I love burnt toast.”
Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy, good night & I asked him if he really liked his toast burnt.
He wrapped me in his arms and said: “Your momma put in a long hard day at work today and she was really tired.
And besides a burnt toast never hurts anyone but harsh words do!”
“You know son – life is full of imperfect things and imperfect people.
I’m not the best and am hardly good at anything!
I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else.
What I’ve learnt over the years is: to accept each others faults and choose to celebrate relationships.
Life is too short to wake up with regrets!
Love the people who treat you right and have compassion for the ones who don’t…
Enjoy life now! It has an expiry date.
