    Someone sent me this knowing it would ring true with me.....


    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!

    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.

    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

    NOW --------Enough of that crap . . .

    The donkey later came back, and bit the **** out of 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!

    That is brilliant and so very fitting of me right now, I have so much **** on my back (work not weight) that I feel as if I am being buried alive.

    I am going to send that on to my husband if that is ok - because we both feel as if we are in a bit of a pit!
