When I was small, my mom used to give the family something special for meals—she would make breakfast food for dinner.

I still remember one nigh my mom put some ?bread in front of my dad, something very burnt.I waited to see if anybody ?noticed. Tomy surprise, my dad just took his bread smiled at my mom and then ?turned to ask me how day at school had been. Ihave forgotten what I told him?that night. But I do remember watching him put some butter on that bread. He ate it up as usual, every single bit.

After dinner, my mom said sorry to my?dad for burning the bread. And I never forget what he said, “I love burnt bread, dear.It doesn’t matter at all.” Later that night I went to kiss dad good night. Iasked him if he really liked his bread burnt. He held me in arms and said, “Your mom worked very hard all day. She’s really tired. And you see--a bit of ?burnt ?food never hurt anyone!”

Now I know life is not perfect. Nobody isperfect, either. As for me, I often forget birthdays or some other special ?days. But I have learned something importantover these years. What we really ?need isthe understanding of each other, whether between a husband and wife, a?parent and child or just between twofriends. This is the key to a happy life.

So don’t get angry if the bread gets burnt. Remember, burnt bread never hurt anyone. Be kind to those around you and a happier life will surely come closer to you.
