biscuits Life Is Full of Imperfect Things
Found this on Facebook and just had to share – a great reminder to smile, love, and “pass the biscuits, and the burned one will do just fine.”

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 Daddy good night and I asked him if he really liked his biscuits burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, “Your momma put in a long hard day at work today and she’s real tired. And besides… a burnt biscuit never hurt anyone!” You know, life is full of imperfect things… and imperfect people. I’m not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else. What I’ve learned over the years is that learning to accept each others faults and choosing to celebrate each others differences, is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

A wise woman knows life is short, so why waste time and energy on regret, bickering, complaining about imperfections. Love the people in your life, accept them as they are, faults and all (and that includes loving and accepting yourself too).

royalcastle 300x195 Yes I am Lady

Lady Rose is “officially” titled Lady.

My friends know I have an “odd” sense of humor and a tendency to be silly. Back in June 2007 I reached a new height of silliness! I happened to find an Ebay auction to own a small piece of land (with salmon and fishing rights too!) that entitles you to be called “Lord or Lady.”  Since my pen name is “Lady Rose” I just HAD to have this little piece of land in the Scottish Highlands so I could “officially be called “Lady.” The paperwork arrived all the way from across the pond within a couple of weeks. My lovely, spacious one-square-foot estate is located in Lochaber, the heart of the Highlands of Scotland.

I think my position in a royal court would most likely be the Court Jester.

I believe in allowing silliness to flourish whenever I can.  What have you done that is silly or makes you smile?

Wishing everyone a happy, healthy, and fun day, Lady Rose
