learning

Lately I have been learning that some mistakes, you only need to make once. Earlier this week, I put too much vanilla in the pancakes, then forgot salt the next time...now I think my pancakes are pretty good. It only took me a few mistakes to perfect my whole wheat pancakes. So I mastered pancakes and then went onto German Pancakes...which I have made a dozen times. I thought I had the recipie memorized...I thought wrong. There is a big difference between 1/2 cup of butter and 1/4 cup of butter. 35 minutes after the mistake was made I had a serious learning experience. I have found that I really learn best by making mistakes. This is why I think it is okay to make mistakes. I can promise that I will never mess that butter up again. There is now no confusion on the difference of 1/2 and 1/4 cup of butter! Mistakes always clarify things for me and usually make me realize how good the good is. How nice it is when we do follow the rules and put the right amount of salt and that kind of thing. I have just been thinking a lot about all my mistakes and this is my current ponder. My Dad always taught me that I have only lost if I have not learned anything. I want to always learn somthing. My pancakes will never be a complete mess if I can learn something and better the next batch...they are just half a mess!

Be less hard on yourself, it is okay to make mistakes! Just learn from them and let them help you become a better person. Whether your mistakes be with cooking or relationships, make sure you learn.

Wow I sound preachy...sorry.

Have a marvelous night and know that Tara Bodrero is happy tonight. Tonight all is well and my heart is happy...tonight I believe more than ever that I can be healed.

Dream of Shamu and dolphins tongiht...they never fail to bring good dreams!

I have a daughter that is 8 that has been chronically ill her whole life. I know that dolphins and Shamu have a special magic that brings happy thoughts. In the ICU for one of her longer stays she wanted to watch Shamu so we contacted SeaWorld to purchase their Believe show and she watched it over and over to escape and make it better. Thank you for sharing your trials and triumphs. Alia (my daughter) says that if you really need to get away while stuck at the hospital just think about being Nemo and escaping to the ocean through the drain in the sink.

This was exactly what I needed to hear right now. You were not preachy, but rather prompted to share things that others need to hear...like myself. I love reading your blog and your strength is such an example to me! You are always in our prayers :)

Hey Tara it's me Josh!

I know I'm more in love than I was when I first told you, more than when I told you on a mountain giving you your ring, and even more than when I first saw you on our wedding day. You're the best ever and I can't wait to get home from work so I can see you again tonight.

See ya soon,\
Josh
