Keep the key in your own pocket

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

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. But 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.”

God Bless You … Now and Always

So please pass me a biscuit, and YES, the burnt one will do just fine!!! And PLEASE pass this along to someone who has enriched your life.

THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK

It is far easier to whisper advice from cover than to test it’s merit at the point of attack.

Hey Rocco………

Ok, this seems very straight forward blogging software. I have seen a few different programs and this one is good, lots of potential, I can see it is customizable to a very large degree and I am going to fool around with it and  learn it. Ok, then what? What’s on your mind with this website stuff.

This is what I think Rocco, you know the old saying, ” Think big but start small ” I never liked that saying, rather, I like to think, “Think enormous and start with determination” another one of my favorite sayings is:

Those who try to do something and fail, are infinitley better than those who try to do nothing and succeed.

Keep it moving forward.

Your eternal white belt-DC
