Words to Live By.......


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 and was astonished at what he saw. With every
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 when the donkey stepped up out of the
well and 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
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!

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
1. Free your heart from hatred.
2. Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less..
Enjoy Your Week
