Transcript

  • 1. Here’s some good old Chinese wisdom! Do not click. Put on the sound
  • 2. An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole, which she carried across her neck.
  • 3. One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water.
  • 4. At the end of the long walk from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.
  • 5. For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water.
  • 6. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments.
  • 7. 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.
  • 8. After 2 years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream.
  • 9. “I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house.”
  • 10. 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?
  • 11. 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.”
  • 12. “For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table.”
  • 13. Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house.”
  • 14. Each of us has our own unique flaw…
  • 15. But it’s the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding.
  • 16. You’ve just got to take each person for what they are and look for the good in them.
  • 17. To all of my crackpot friends, have a great day and remember to smell the flowers, on your side of the path.
  • 18. Take the time to send this message to all your friends Who have a cracked side… And God knows how many we are!!!
