When I was a kid, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner
everynow and then. And I remember one night
in particular
when she had madebreakfast 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 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 andanniversaries just like everyone else.
What I've learned over the years
is that learning to accept each others faults
and choosing to celebrateeach others differences,
is one of the most important keys to creating
ahealthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

So...please pass me a biscuit. And yes,
the burned one will do justfine!
And please pass this along to someone
who has enriched yourlife... I just did!

Life is too short to wake up with regrets...
Love the people who treatyou right
and forget about the ones who don't...
