Farmer's donkey

A good friend sent me this great short story
and I just wanted to share it with you 
dear friends.

"One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a
well that the farmer had accidentally left
uncovered. 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, so it just
wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbours 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 neighbours 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!

Moral of the story....
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.
