One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal
cried 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 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.
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.
MORAL FROM THIS STORY :
When you do something wrong, and try to cover
your mistakes, it always comes back to bite you.
