  • ~ One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a
  • well. The animal cried piteously for hours as
  • the farmer tried to figure out what to do.
  • Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the
  • well needed to be covered up anyway;
  • it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.
  • He invited all his neighbors to come over and
  • help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began
  • to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the
  • donkey realized what was happening and cried
  • horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he
  • quieted down.
  • A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally
  • looked down the well. He was astonished at what
  • he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his
  • back, the donkey was doing something amazing.
  • He would shake it off and take a step up.
  • As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel
  • dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it
  • off and take a step up.
  • Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey
  • stepped up over the edge of the well and
  • happily trotted off!
  • Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds
  • of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well
  • is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of
  • our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out
  • of the deepest wells just by not stopping,
  • never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.
  • Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
  • Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.
  • Free your mind from worries - Most never happen.
  • Live simply and appreciate what you have.
  • Give more.
  • Expect less
  • NOW ............
  • Enough of that crap . . The donkey later came back,
  • and bit the farmer who had tried to bury him.
  • The gash from the bite got infected and
  • the farmer eventually died in agony from septic shock.
  • MORAL FROM TODAY'S LESSON:
  • When you do something wrong, and try to cover
  • your behind, it always comes back to bite you. ~
