'CRACK POTS'




An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on  the ends of a pole which she carried across her neck.

One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was  perfect and always delivered a full portion of water.

At the end of the long walk from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.
 
For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water.

Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its
 accomplishments.

But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it could only do half of what had been made to do.

After 2 years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream.

"I am ashamed  of myself, because this crack in my side causes water to  leak out all the way back to your house."

 The old woman smiled, "Did you notice that there are flowers on your side of the path, but not on the other pot's side?"

"That's because I have always known about your flaw, so I  planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you water them.
 

"For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table.
Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the  house."

Each of us has our own unique flaw.
But it's the cracks and  flaws we each have that make our lives together so very
 interesting and rewarding.
 
You've just got to take each person for what they are and look for the good in them.

SO, to all of my crackpot friends
, have a great day and  remember to smell the flowers on your side of the path!
