I read this amazing story on FB that can teach us a lot of things. Read it and I'm sure you'll reflect on how you lead your life.
When I was a kid, my Mom liked to cook food and every now & then I remember she used to cook for us. One night
in particular when she had made dinner after a long hard day at work,
Mom placed a plate of bread jam and extremely burned 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 at school. I don't
remember what I told him that night, but I do remember I heard Mom
apologizing to dad for burning the toast. And I'll never forget what he
said: "Honey, I love burned toast." Later that night, I went to kiss
Daddy good night and I asked him if he really liked his toast burned. 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, 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 other’s differences, is one of the most
important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.
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.:)
