Slightly Cracked

Anyone who has been my friend for very long is well aware that I am not only slightly cracked but my brain is a bit scrambled too! :-)  It turns out that most of the people I am drawn too have similar situations.  I've always figured that anyone who appeared to be perfect probably has something they are hiding, and if they truly are perfect I'd be uncomfortable around them.

I do not seek perfection, I know that's not going to happen to me in this life time, and most certainly if I was my halo would either fit too tightly or tilt to one side. :-)  The most I can hope for and strive for, is to be the very best I can be, and that will have to be good enough.  I also tend to think that people who are "slightly cracked" are far more interesting than those who always roll on the straight and narrow pathway.  The older we get the more permissible it is to have a few quirks and I'm pretty much ok with the way I am.

The few real friends I am blessed to have must realize that slightly cracked or not, I still have a good heart, and that is what's most important.

I'm joining Patricia for In Other Words
where this week's writing prompt
is the following quotation by Bernard Meltzer:
"A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg
even though he knows that you are slightly cracked."


  1. I remember reading a story about a cracked water pot that leaked, but it watered all the plants along the way- cracked is good :)

    1. Now that you've mentioned it, I've read it somewhere too, Ellen, and it was a lovely story with a good lesson. What appears to some as flaws may actually be part of God's perfect design for us! :-)

  2. I think those of us a little cracked are definitely, and infinitely more interesting!! I always say, you should raise just enough eyebrows in life that you keep people on their toes... but never step on them! :)

    1. That's a wonderful saying, Rory Bore, I'm going to remember that! You need to do a picture quote with it on your blog, so I can share it and save it! :-)


Your comments are always appreciated... they make me smile! :-)
