One day a farmer's donkey fell 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. The

well needed to be covered up anyways.

It just wasn't worth his time to retrieve an old donkey

from a useless well.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and

help. They all grabbed a shovel and began

to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the
terrified donkey cried out
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 its

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, it would shake the dirt

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 by not stopping.

Never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

Remember these simple rules of happiness:

1. Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.

2. Free your mind from worries - Most never occur.

3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.

4. Give more.

5. Expect less



NOW ............

Enough of that crap . . ..

The donkey 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.


When you do something wrong, and try to cover
your ass, it always comes back to bite you.
