The Tale Of The Cracked Pot!

A listener sent this to me this morning and when I read it I thought - this will be good to broadcast which I did in the Early Hour (4-5am). I immediately got requests to put it on this blog so here it is.

An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which she carried across her back. One of the pots had a crack in it while the other was perfect and always held a full portion of water.

At the end of a long walk from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full. For 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 achievemnt, but the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection and miserable that it could do only half of what it had been made to do.

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

"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 at the pot. "Did you notice that there are flowers on your side of the path but not on the other pots side?" She said. "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 me. For two years now 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 makes 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 my crack pot friends, have a great day and remember to smell the flowers on your side of the path!
