Donkey In The Well Fable

I just seen this on a friends Facebook page and I thought it was really cute. I thought I'd share it with the community.

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, th
e 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!

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.

You're welcome Kendra! Glad you liked it : ) When I first read it, I told my boyfriend to let me read it to him. He really liked it too. It's a cute story with a good message. It also just makes me smile when the donkey steps out of the well, smiles, and trots away.

@Rod Ronald - why is it sad? It's the story of triumph - the farmer doesn't care enough to save the donkey, but little by little the donkey used the dirt shovelled over him to win the day!

We all have days were dirt is being shovelled over us - the trick is to use it to win, and not let it suffocate us!

@sktb0007 - thank you for the reminder.
