Marriage Warning

Marriage Warning

After being married for 35 years,
I took a careful look at my wife one day & said,
"Honey, 35 years ago we had a cheap apartment,
a cheap car, slept on a sofa bed & watched a 10-inch
black & white TV, but I got to sleep everynight
with a hot & sexy 19 year-old gal.

Now I have a $ 650,000 home, a $55,000 car,
nice big bed & plasma screen TV,
but I'm sleeping with a 54 year-old woman.
It seems to me that you're not holding up your side
of the bargain".

My wife is a very reasonable woman.
She told me to go out & find a hot, 19 year-old gal
& she would make sure that I would once again be living
in a cheap apartment, driving a cheap car,
sleeping on a sofa bed & watching a 10-inch black & white TV.

Aren't older women great?
They really know how to solve your mid-life crisis.

"Burnt Toast" ... A beautiful story

"Burnt Toast" ... A beautiful story

This is a nice story......Embracing Imperfection
A story by a girl.

"When I was a little girl, 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 toast in front of
my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed!

Yet all my dad did was reach for his toast,
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 Watching him smear butter and jelly
on that toast 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 toast. And I'll never forget what he said:
'Baby, I love burned toast.'

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and
I asked him if He really liked his toast burned.
He wrapped me in his arms and said, 'Debbie, your Momma
put in a hard day at work today and she's real tired.
And besides - a little burnt toast never hurt anyone!
You know, life is full of imperfect things...
and imperfect people. I'm not the best housekeeper or cook.'

What I've learned over the years is that learning
to accept each other's faults - and choosing to
celebrate each other's differences - is one of the
most important keys to 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.

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 friendship!!"

"Don't put the key to your happiness in someone
else's pocket but into your own."
And you will appreciate the value of every soul including yourself.
