“Look at that cup, Old School! What do you think?” I was so tickled with joy and delight in her creation. I remember the day she would not even give touching the clay a second thought, and now she is making one to two cups every time she sits at the pottery table.
“Well, you know… I think it’s alright. (brief pause) The bottom is a little uneven around the edges. It’s good though,” she replied with a convincing little smile.
Hearing the conversation Abbie, the pottery teacher, began to tell Old School ways with a little water, a sponge and time she could smooth edges and make them even. Old School listened and then she said, “Oh no. I like it like this, being that I made it. You know?”
Once again Old School unknowingly became a speaker of truth and grace into the life one who is a perfectionist in recovery, whose imperfections are often a source of deep sadness, insecurities, fear, avoidance… just to name a few unhelpful responses. Ha.
Her words echoed in my head all day long though… I like it like this being that I made it all.
What a beautiful day it will be when the words not only echo in the head, but in the living as well.
All praise to the one who made it all, who made it all/All praises to the one who made it all and finds it beautiful
