One day, an aunt of mine who was a school teacher was teaching her students about the importance of helping their parents with household chores. Each student was asked to share what they did to help their parents. One student volunteered, "I scrape the toast."
I like that. Someone in his family evidently was in the habit of overcooking the toast, and this child assumed the responsibility for scraping off the burned places.
I hope you have someone in your family or some close friend who covers your errors when you mess up. The Good Book says, Love covers a multitude of mistakes.
