just want to share this beautiful story. ***************** One day, a wife came to her husband with a magazine in her hand, "Darling, this article is wonderful. It describes a little activity that we can both do to improve our marriage. can we do it together?" "Sure," her husband said. "It says here that for one day, each of us will separately write a list of what areas we want the other to change. Little annoyances, little irritations, etc. And then tomorrow, we share this list to each other. Deal?" "Deal!" the husband smiled. That day, the man sat on the living room with paper in hand. The wife went to the bedroom and did the same thing. The next day, over breakfast, the wife said, "Game? can I start first?" "Yes," the husband said. The wife pulled out three pages. Single spaced. Font 8. It was a long list. She began to read her list. "Darling, I don't like it when you do this..." On and on, she read the little ways her husbands annoyed her. The man felt a sting in his heart. The wife noticed this and asked, "Do you want me to continue?" "I can handle it. Go on," the man said. So the wife continued to read. Finally, the woman said, "Okay, it's your turn." The husband pulled out his piece of paper and said, "Yesterday, I asked the question what are the changes I want in you. But hard as I tried to think, I couldn't think of one thing." He then showed to her the empty piece of paper in his hand. "Because to me, you're perfect in your imperfections. I've accepted who you are-strengths and weaknesses. And I love the whole package. I love the mix. You are a wonderful person and I love you so much." - end ************ so romantic, isn't? ")

Oh so true. After 40 years of marriage those imperfections are still there but heavily outweighed by her perfections. I, of course, have always been perfect! haha

i guess, what makes us perfect is our imperfections. and i think, if a you really love someone, you wouldn't care how imperfect that person is, but rather how she/he made you happy just being with her/him.

Understanding is the awareness and acceptance of their perfection by each of the whole that we are defective and qualities, with shadows and lights. This "good and evil", that "Yin and Yang" is basically human nature is what makes us special and loved, but also banal and ugly, is what gives the genius and the abominable, and adoratiunea fear. We are a perfect creation into being impregnated with all our imperfections because they just give us perfection. Love then why all cravings, which I wore on the lips and hearts ready to bloom and be manifested, given, we find that sacrifice and blessing to do it and receive that love, sit in understanding our perfection.
