The Donkey in the Well
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.yours too… Finally he decided since
the animalwas old, and the well needed to be covered up
anyway, it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.
So, the farmer invited all his neighbors to come over and
help him. They all grabbed shovels, and began to shovel
dirt into the well.

All the other farm animals were very upset about this,
because the donkey was their friend. But they discovered
there was nothing they could do to help him. At first, when
the donkey realized what was happening, he 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 on the dirt as it piled 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 trotted off!

MORAL: Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of
dirt. But each trouble can be a stepping stone. What happens
to you isn't nearly as important as how you react to it.
We can get out of the deepest wells just by not giving up!
Shake it off, and take a step up!
