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 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 dad good night and I asked him if he really liked burned biscuits. He wrapped me in his arms and said: “Your mom put in a long hard day at work today and she’s real tired. And besides… a burned biscuit never hurt anyone!”
You know, life is full of imperfect things… and imperfect people. I am not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else. What I have learned over the years is that learning to accept others faults and choosing to celebrate each other’s differences is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.
Here at Travis Jeffries we embrace and celebrate everyone’s differences and would love to have you select us as your CPA and enjoy a healthy, growing and lasting relationship.
