The Beauty Within!

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 walks 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 two 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!

And send this to any or all,, of your Crack Pot friends Insha Allah!

And Don't forget the,, Crack Pot that sent it to you!!

This e-mail is dedicated to,,

Our dear sister Katka from the Czech Republic,,Who has just became Muslim some hours ago!

My dear sister Katy, from the very bottom,, of My heart and every Muslim's heart,

We would like to first thank,, Allah Swt for guiding you to his straight path,

Then to Congratulate you and tell you...

Regards to brother Mirgani
Jum'atul Mubarakah =)
