EMBRACING IMPERFECTION


 "When I was a little girl, my mom liked to
 make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. And I remember one
night in particular when she had 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 toast in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if
anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for his toast, 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
toast 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 toast. And I'll never forget what he said:
 'Baby, 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, 'Debbie, your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she's
real tired. And besides-a little burnt toast never hurt anyone!' You know,
life is full of imperfect things.....and imperfect people. I'm not the best
housekeeper or cook.**
**
What I've learned over the years is that learning to
 accept each other's faults - and choosing to celebrate
 each other's differences - is the 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 burnt toast isn't a deal-breaker! We could
 extend this to any relationship in fact - as 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 but into your
own."
