    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:



    1. Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.



    2. Free your mind from worries - Most never happen.



    3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.



    4. Give more.



    5. Expect less



    NOW --------



    Enough of that crap . . .



    The donkey later came back, and bit the shit out of 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.



    MORAL FROM TODAY'S LESSON:



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