Comparisons | Cooking | Criticism | Expectations | Failure | Frustration | Humor | Marriage | Mother

The young bride just could not live up to the standards set by her husband’s mother. She tried her best to cook like his mother, and he would continually coach her with suggestions. Her constant failures brought her great discouragement. One morning she was so depressed she just stayed in bed. Her depression lasted throughout the day. She finally dragged herself from bed, draped some clothes over herself and went to the kitchen. She reached into the cupboard and pulled out a can of stew. She dumped it into the pot and warmed it in time for her husband to have his supper. In utter defeat she dished the stew from the pan to her husband’s bowl. Her husband took one bite and praised her, “Finally!!! This is it!!! It is just like my mother used to make it!!!”
