This reminds me of a quote I heard from Billy Graham's wife, Ruth. She said an elderly farmer once told her the way he maintained his happy spirit was to "make the most of all that comes and the least of all that goes." This may not be exact, but it's approximately right! Wish I could live this.

I love the story about the young girl who carried a yoke of clay pots every day down to the river to get water. One of the pots was cracked and everyday the girl bemoaned how the crack pot leaked and by the time she got home she only had half the water she started with. Then one day as she headed down the hill she noticed that there were flowers along the path, but only on ONE side. She found in intriguing. On the way back up the hill as she bemoaned her lost water from her cracked pot she figured out WHY there were flowers on only ONE side of the path. That was the side her crack pot leaked on as she went up the hill.

What we perceive as our cracks, may be a blessing to those around us. There is perfection even in our imperfection.
