Talking A Donkey's Tale

The Donkey Story

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 and was astonished at what he saw. With every

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 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 stepping stone. 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:

1. Free your heart from hatred.

2. Free your mind from worries.

3. Live simply.

4. Give more.

5. Expect less.

P.S.: The donkey later came back and kicked THE ****

out of the farmer that tried burying him.

Moral: When you try to cover your ***, it always

comes back to get you.
