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:

Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.

 Free your mind from worries - Most never happen.

 Live simply and appreciate what you have.


   Give more.

Expect less


 NOW ............ 

 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. 


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