A short story



This is the story of a ever happy person..

When I was a kid, my mom would prepare special breakfast every now and then. And I remember one night in particular, 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 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 hard day at work today and she's real tired . And besides - a little 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 others faults - and choosing to celebrate each others 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 base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship! 


 Don't put the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket - keep it in your own.

Such a nice story ,everybody remember their good old days.

From the story one has to remember this sutra ;

Judging is preventing us from understanding the truth. Free yourself from judgments and create t new understanding.

Sometimes, the best things in life, are not things at all.. but the people who make you feel loved and cared for.

Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have. Be happy with who you are and what you do, and you can do anything you want.Be thankful for what you have, not unhappy with you don't.
