The Donkey


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 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:


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


MORAL FROM TODAY'S LESSON: When you do something wrong, and try

to cover your ass, it always comes back to bite you.
