Hi everybody!

I came across this organization today, Ecosandals, and I was so impressed by it that I felt I just had to share it with all of you. I think what they're doing is a great idea - maybe others of you out there might want to borrow on their idea for something you're working on??? I also like the idea that what they're doing is environmentally friendly. Read on - and have a wonderful day - I'm off to order me a new pair of shoes - a girl can never have too many pairs of shoes!!!

The Cracked Pot

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 it had been made to do.

After 2 years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, the cracked pot 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!

I would just like to state that there is a BIG difference between being alone and being lonely.
I may be single but I'm certainly not lonely. I have AMAZING friends, a job I like, co-workers that are a hoot to work with, all my animals and all the other things that keep me busy. I have a full life - I don't sit and wallow in self-pity because I'm not in a relationship at the moment. This is not to say, however, that I don't hope and dream of eventually finding my soulmate/friend/confidante/love of my life/someone to cuddle with! I certainly hope that he's out there somewhere! I just get upset when people assume that, poor thing, she's on her own! I'm a happy person and, quite frankly, some past relationships have certainly put a damper on me being a happy person! Better to be happy and single than to be miserable in a bad relationship. Been there, done that, don't need it again! So that's my rant for the day - thought I'd share it with all my fellow single comrades out there! Have a WONDERFUL day!!!
