    Lightbulb For All Crackpots.

    This was sent to me by a lovedone and it turned out to be one of the best inspirational stories I've ever read.

    Inspirational thought of the day...

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

    One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and
    always delivered a full portion of water, at the end of the long walk from
    the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

    For a full 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
    accomplishments. 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.

    After 2 years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the
    woman one day by the stream. "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, "Did you notice that there are flowers on your side
    of the path, but not on the other pot's side?" "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 two years 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 make 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 of my crackpot friends, have a great day and remember to smell
    the flowers on your side of the path!

    I see that you are the good, uncracked pot on the other side. Sorry, no flowers for you then.
