FORWARDED MESSAGE

Are you one of those who hated reading "Forwarded Messages"? Those who delete it at once and don't even give the courtesy to thank the sender? I'm not, I love reading them. But first, I scroll down with the cursor and read pass fast if its a chain letter. If yes, then straight to the 'cestino'(waste basket)it goes. Sometimes, even from simple notes comes the summary of what we should learn our whole life through. Here's one sent by R.Gorostiza:

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 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 :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

You have two choices...smile and close this page, or pass this along to someone else to spread the fun. I know what I did!!

Saw this same post in Surfer Wil's blog a few months back. Believe the moral of story is "even an ass has a damn good brain!" Kinda scary if you have some "donkey" friends, hehe.....
Cheers to you and your family and goodhealth too.
