A delicately , flower-patterned , highly valuable and priceless antique teacup survives despite being handled , dropped and broken . It has little gaps and cracks which add to the effect that time has left on its beauty . Within these cracks and disjointed flower patterns is a story to be told . Life is just like an antique teacup , filled with storms and chamomile . Often , bits of ourselves are found lying on the floor and the patterns of our past , reveal gaps and cracks . But , we remain beautiful , priceless , invaluable . The indomitable human spirit has the ability to transcend the times we have been handled , dropped and broken .
