Farmer and 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 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 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  shock.  


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