When I was a kid, my Mom cooked food for us. One night in particular when she had made dinner after a long hard day\'s work, Mom placed a plate of vegetable and extremely burnt Chapaati in front of my Dad. I was waiting to see if anyone noticed the burnt chapaati. But Dad just ate his chapaati and asked me how was my day was at school. I don\'t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember I heard Mom apologising to Dad for the burnt chapaati. And I will never forget what he said: Honey, I love burnt chapaati. Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy, good night & I asked him if he really liked his chapaati burnt. He wrapped me in his arms & said: Your momma put in a long hard day at work today and she was really tired. And besides, A burnt chapaati never hurts anyone but harsh words do! You know beta life is full of imperfect things & imperfect people. I AM NOT THE BEST & AM HARDLY GOOD AT ANYTHING! I forget birthdays & anniversaries just like everyone else. What I have learnt over the years is : To Accept Each Others Faults & Choose To Celebrate Relationships. Life Is Too Short To Wake Up With Regrets! Love the people who treat you right & have compassion for the ones who don\'t!!! ENJOY LIFE NOW !!! It has an expiry date ..
