Would u like to have a cup of Tea?

There was a couple who used to go to England to shop in the beautiful stores. They both liked antiques and pottery and especially teacups. This was their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. One day in this beautiful shop they saw a beautiful teacup. They said, “May we see that? We’ve never seen one quite so beautiful”. As the lady handed it to them, suddenly the teacup spoke. “You don’t understand”. It said. “Haven’t always been a teacup .there was a time when I was red and I was clay. My master took me and rolled me and patted me over and over and I yelled out, ‘Let me alone’. But he smiled, ‘Not yet’. “Then I was placed on a spinning wheel,” the teacup said, and suddenly was spun around and around and around. ‘Stop it! I’m getting dizzy!’ I screamed. But the master only nodded and said, ‘Not yet.’ “Then he put me in the oven. I never felt such heat. I wondered why he wanted to burn me, and I yelled and knocked at the door. I could see him through the opening and I could read his lips as he shook his head, ‘Not yet’. “Finally the door opened, he put me on the shelf, and I began to cool.’ there, that’s better’, I said. And he brushed and painted me all over. The fumes were horrible. I thought I would gag. ‘Stop it!’ I cried. He only nodded, ‘Not yet’. “Then suddenly he put me back into the oven, not like the first one. This was twice as hot and I knew I would suffocate. I begged. I pleaded. I screamed. I cried. All the time I could see him through the opening nodding his head saying, ‘Not yet.” Then I knew there wasn’t any hope. I would never make it. I was ready to give up. But the door opened and he took me out and placed me on the shelf. One hour later he handed me a mirror and I couldn’t believe it was me. ‘It’s beautiful. I’m beautiful.’ When you are going through adversity, & searching for reasons & answers, remember that it may not be a punishment from God, it may not be your fault or anyone’s fault. Adversity is here for a reason; for it is only through struggles, pain & suffering that we grow stronger & wiser.
