The Empty Glass

on March 24, 2013

There was once an empty glass, it felt so lonely, pushed to the back of the cupboard, behind all the fancier glasses that got used all the time, filled with just as fancy wines, shared with friends getting drunk and talking about politics. But this empty glass was never touched, simply ignored. Plain and boring, this glass felt useless.

Then one day, all the glasses were pulled out of the cupboard one by one, including the plain, old one at the back. For some reason the other glasses were put aside, but the empty glass suddenly was submerged in hot, soapy water, being caressed with care as it was cleaned to perfection and then dried with a soft tea towel.

“This one is perfect.” a woman said, and put some fresh water into the glass. It was the first time the glass had even been filled. It felt good, but then the woman wasn’t finished. She put in something else- the most beautiful yellow daffodils that shone like the morning sunrise. The empty glass was no longer empty, helping to bring beauty into someone’s life.
