·An elderly 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 cracked pot friends, have a great day and remember to smell the flowers on your side of the path! God Bless You all!!!
Six years ago, I was introduced to something that has transformed my life: essential oils.
Yes I was a big skeptic about them at first, but I now use essential oils on a daily basis in every area of my home, and they have completely changed my life! My medicine cabinet has been completely transformed, and I am now empowered with the tools and knowledge to care for my family.
When I realized I could get free products AND create residual income? I got really excited!
As a result, of my essential oil journey, and passion helping others, I’m ready to help you get started with your essential oil journey as well.
The best part about essential oils is that there is an option for everyone, whether you want to simply enjoy the products for yourself and transform your family’s health (and get free stuff in the process) OR you’re ready to build a team, create residual income, and get out of debt.
If any of these options sound appealing to you, let’s chat!
I’ll help you figure out which option will be the best fit for you, plus you can qualify for some awesome incentives in the process.
I can’t wait to talk to you!
I love sharing essential oils

This is a great addition to your essential oil needs.
This is so true. I use at least a dozen oils on a daily basis.
“What is reincarnation?” A cowboy asked his friend.
“Well it starts” His old pal told him, “when your life comes to an end.”
They wash your face, and comb your hair, and clean your finger nails.
Then they stick you in a padded box, away for life’s travails.
Next, the box and you go in a hole that’s been dug in the ground.
It’s then that reincarnation starts, when your planted neath that mound.
The clods melt down, as does the box, and you who are inside.
And now you’re well into your transformation ride.
In a while the grass will grow upon that rendered mound,
and then one day upon that spot a lone flower will be found.
And maybe a horse will wander by and graze upon that flower,
that once was you and has now become your vegatative bower.
Well, the flower eaten by the horse along with other feed
makes bone, and fat and muscle essential to the steed.
But there’s a part that he can’t use, and so it passes through,
and lies there on the ground, this thing that once was you.
And if by chance, I happen by and see this on the ground,
i’ll pause a while and ponder on this object I have found.
I’ll think of reincarnation and life and death and such,
and go away concluding, heck, you haven’t changed that much.
