Here’s some good old Chinese wisdom! Do not click. Put on the sound

Slide 2: 

An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole, which she carried across her neck.

Slide 3: 

One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water.

Slide 4: 

At the end of the long walk from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

Slide 5: 

For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water.

Slide 6: 

Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments.

Slide 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.

Slide 8: 

After 2 years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream.

Slide 9: 

“I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house.”

Slide 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?

Slide 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.”

Slide 12: 

“For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table.”

Slide 13: 

Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house.”

Slide 14: 

Each of us has our own unique flaw…

Slide 15: 

But it’s the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding.

Slide 16: 

You’ve just got to take each person for what they are and look for the good in them.

Slide 17: 

To all of my crackpot friends, have a great day and remember to smell the flowers, on your side of the path.

Slide 18: 

Take the time to send this message to all your friends Who have a cracked side… And God knows how many we are!!!
