I’ve read about this story a long time ago. I can’t remember when and where. I’m not even sure whether the story is true or not, but it serves a meaningful purpose. This simple story is a true definition of parents setting a great example for their kids.
They teach their kids how to be great adults by showing them how to be one. The lesson is pretty simple yet very important. We should learn to take the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of our lives and see the positive side of things.
I wish every couple would get a chance to read this incredibly touching story.
When I was about eight or nine, my mom liked to cook food and every now and then I remember she used to cook for us.
One night that stood out in my mind is when she had made dinner for us after a very long and rough day at work, She placed a plate of jam and extremely burned toast in front of my dad. Not slightly burnt but completely blackened toast.
I was just waiting to see if anyone noticed the burnt toast and say anything. But Dad just ate his toast and asked me if I did my homework and how my day was. I don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember hearing my mom apologizing to dad for burning the toast. And I’ll never forget what he said:
“Sweetie, I love burned toast.”
Later that night, I went to tell my dad good night and ask him if he really liked his toast burned. He put his arm on my shoulder and said,
“Your momma put in a very long day at work today and she was very tired. And besides, A burnt toast never hurts anyone but you know what does? Harsh words!”
Then he continued to say “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 every other human.
But 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 for 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.
People may forget what you do, and they may forget what you say, but they will never forget the way you made them feel.
