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
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
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

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.

The gash from the bite got infected and
the farmer eventually died in agony from septic shock.
