A 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 neighbours
to come over and help him.
They all grabbed a shovel
and began to shovel dirt into the well.
At first,
the donkey realised 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 someting
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!!
MORAL OF THE STORY:
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..
