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 
. . 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 you.

You have two choices…smile and  close this
page, or pass this along to someone else to spread the fun.
