A story I read:
When I was a little boy, 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, 'Little Buddy, 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 personally am not the best at some things either.'
What I've learned over the years is that learning to accept each other's
- and choosing to celebrate each other's differences
-is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing,and lasting relationship.
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. No one else can MAKE you happy,
Your happiness is a choice you make.
People will always forget what you do, and they will always forget what you
Say, but they will never, ever forget the way you make them feel.

chew on this- as golfers the best we can hope to be is perfectly imperfect, so why try to perfect something that can't!? If your worst tee shot is just off the edge of every fairway, your worst 2nd shot just on the edge of every green and your worst chip is just on the edge of the hole golf would seem pretty easy no?
there are no pictures on the scorecard, just a little number in a box
