MORAL FOR TODAY

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 neighbours 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 neighbours 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 cr#p. 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 #ss, it always comes back to bite you.

I like it. The expression, "Dumm Ass" takes on a new meaning.

So a donkey wanders onto the battlefield and gets shot. It's starting to smell, so an officer assigns to GI's to bury it. They start digging a hole big enough to drop it in, and are working up a sweat when the Chaplain comes by and asks them what they are burying.
"A stupid donkey," one of the soldier says.
Chuckling, the Chaplain says, "You know, in the Bible, it wouldn't be called a donkey, it would be called an "ass". So you could say it was a stupid ass."
The soldiers laugh and the Chaplain goes about his business.
A Colonel drives by and loks at the men, hacking at the ground with entrenching tools and says, 'You men digging a foxhole."
"Not according to the Chaplain," one replies.

"...it reminds me of the story about the two mice that fall into the pitcher of milk..." started the goblin now, continuing "...the first mouse gave up and drowned, where the second just kept on swimming till it turned to butter..."
