*When I was a little girl, I could remember, my mom making breakfast and
dinner for us.*
*And I remember one night in particular, when she had made dinner after a
long, hard day at work. *
*On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of vegetables, salad and
burnt chappati in front of my dad.*

*I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed'*

*Yet all my dad did was, to reach for his chappati, smile at 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 chatni on that chappati 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 chapati.*
*And I'll never forget what he said.*
*Baby, I love burnt chapati.*
*Later that night, I went to kiss daddy good night and I asked him if he
really liked his  chapati burnt.*
*He wrapped me in his arms and said*
*Dear , your momma put in a hard day at work today and she's real tired, And
besides, a little burnt chappati  never hurt anyone* .
*You know life is full of imperfect things and imperfect people.*
*I am not the best housekeeper or cook.*
*What I'v learnt over the years*
*Is that learning to accept each other's faults*
*And choosing to celebrate each other's difference*
*Is one of the most important keys*
*for 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 burnt chappati isn't a deal-breaker"*
*We could extend this to any relationship, in fact* .
*As understanding is the base of any*
*relationship ,*
*Be it a husband - wife or parent - child or even with friends.*

*Don't put the key to your happiness in *
*Someone else's pocket, but, into your own.*
