  • Tale of theThe Cracked Pot
  • An elderlywoman hadtwo largepots, eachhung on theends of apole, whichshe carriedacross herneck.
  • One of the potshad a crack in itwhile the otherpot was perfectand alwaysdelivered a fullportion ofwater.
  • At the endof the longwalk fromthe stream tothe house,the crackedpot arrivedonly half full.
  • For a full twoyears thiswent on daily,with thewomanbringing homeonly one and ahalf pots ofwater.
  • Of course, theperfect pot wasproud of itsaccomplishments.
  • But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its ownimperfection,and miserable that it could only do half of what it had been made to do.
  • After 2 years of what itperceived to be bitter failure, itspoke to the woman one day by the stream.
  • “I am ashamed of myself because, this crack in my side causes water to leakout all the way back to your house.”
  • The old womansmiled, “Didyou notice thatthere areflowers on yourside of thepath, but noton the otherpot’s side?
  • That’s because I have always known about your flaw, so I planted flower seeds on yourside of the path, and every day while we walk back, you water them.”
  • “For twoyears Ihave beenable topick thesebeautifulflowers todecoratethe table.”
  • “Without you beingjust the way you are,there would not be this beauty to grace the house.”
  • Each of ushas our ownuniqueflaw…
  • But it’s thecracks andflaws we allhave thatmake our livestogetherso veryinterestingand rewarding.
  • You’ve just got to take each person forwhat they are and look for the good inthem.
  • To all of my crackpot friends Have a great day and rememberto smell the flowers, on yourside of the path. ~Neepa
