The cracked water pot.............


A woman had 2 large pots each of which was hung on the end of a pole which she carried across her neck...

Now 1 of the pots had a crack in it whilst the other pot was perfect and without fail always delivered a full portion of water.......at the end of the long walk from the river to the womans house the cracked pot always arrived half full.....

Incredibly this went on for 2 years and the woman always brought home one and a half pots of water......the perfect pot was naturally proud of its accomplishments but the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its imperfection and upset and miserable that it was only able to do half of what it was meant to do.......

After 2 years of what it thought to be total failure the pot spoke to the woman at the stream one day...(theres a thing...a talking pot !!)

"I am ashamed of myself" said the pot....."because this crack in my side causes water to leak all the way back to your house after all your hard work to fill me"

The woman smiled......."did you notice that there are beautiful flowers of all colours on your side of the path but not on the others pots side" ??........

She continued....."thats because I have always known about your flaw so I planted flower seeds on your side of the path and every day we walk back and forth to the river you water them for me.....for 2 years I have been able to pick these wonderful and beautiful flowers to brighten my house...without you being the way you are I would not have this beauty to grace my house and my life..."

The moral.......each of us has our own unique flaw......but its those cracks and flaws we all have that make our lives so interesting and ultimately rewarding......

You've just got to take each person for what they are...who they are.......and look for the good in them....its always there

So to ALL my crackpot friends..........enjoy life....be good.......be proud of who you are...and always......remember to smell the flowers on your side of the path

And if you're not down with that....I've got just 2 words for ya.....

S*CK IT !!!!

Sometimes we don't accept what other people's quirks are...I wouldn't call them flaws as such...but acceptance of what makes that person unique is a good start
