Honey - I love burnt toast

One evening my mother made dinner after she had completed a very a hard day's work. She put a plate of eggs, salad and burnt toast in front of my father and me.

I immediately noticed, the burnt toast and I was waiting to see if he was going to complain about it, but my father started to eat everything, then smiling he asked me how I was my day at school.

My mum apologized to my father for the burnt toast and I will never forget his response to her . . . 'Honey, I love burnt toast!'

Later when I went to bed and my father came over to kiss me goodnight, I asked him if he really liked the burnt toast. He hugged me and said, 'Your mother has had a difficult and hard day and she is really tired. She went out of her way to prepare the meal for us, why blame her and hurt her. Burnt toast never hurt anyone; but words can be very painful!'

We have to know how to appreciate what others do for us, even if it's not perfect, because it's the intention to do well that counts, and no one is perfect.
