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 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 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 Mamma put in a hard day at work today and she’s real tired. And besides – a little burnt biscuit never hurt anyone!”

Let us try to accept each others faults and  overlook perceived character flaws and  imperfections . We are all a work in progress. Let us be  more understanding,  a “bad day” happens to all of us.  Let us not make a big deal out of a burnt biscuit.

    The biscuits may have been burnt but they were sweetened with the love they were made with!

  2. Yes let us all accept each other’s faults and learn to understand each other. The father was so right he knew how much his wife was working and did not want to hurt her and show his distaste all would have gone bad but he knew how to react and explain to his son so well. Beautiful story so much to learn from them and be happy and cheerful in life. Thanks for sharing dear Amira
