A Post Of Inspiration

As I woke this morning very unrested due to emotions I went to sipping my coffee and checking my email and thinking of a post and I had received this from a friend and and felt relief and wanted to share with all of you....

Burned Biscuits {author unknown}

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 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 the burned biscuits.. And I'll never forget what he said, " honey, I loved 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 is real tired. And besides- a little burned biscuit never hurt anyone."

Life is full of imperfect things and imperfect people. I'm not the best at hardly anything and I sometimes forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else.. But what I have learned over the years is that learning to accept each other's 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 the basis of any relationship, be it a husband -wife or parent or friendship..

Please pass me a biscuit, and yes, the burned one will do just fine... Passing it along to some one who has enriched your life.....
