☆ º ♥ `*.¸.*´ ♥ º ☆.¸¸.*´¯`♥ A Donkey's Tale º ☆.¸¸.*´¯`♥
*

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 quietened 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 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.

¸.*♥*.¸¸.*♥* Thoughts of the Day *♥*.¸¸.*♥*.¸

Happiness comes from spiritual wealth, not material wealth... Happiness comes from giving, not getting. If we try hard to bring happiness to others, we cannot stop it from coming to us also. To get joy, we must give it, and to keep joy, we must scatter it.
~ John Templeton ~

In lieu of a Question of the Day, Suze has planned a little contest today to guess
the name of her grandson to be. She doesn't know the name yet either.

Suze will be along in a bit to give us all of the details. In the meantime, put your
thinking caps on and tap into your psychic abilities to come up with a guess.

Wendy...
Thank you so much for your lesson of life today~!! I really needed to hear that and it has helped a lot. From your words....directly to my heart... and the burden eased. Bless you my friend. ♥

Marilyn

Thank you for the start, Lover of Books. My guess for the name: Aiden

In reply to an earlier post on May 22, 2013 10:14:16 PM PDT
Thank you Marilyn. That means so much to me. You've touched my heart.

Wendy ❤

Love that name Donna. What about a middle name?

Morning LoB
Another start at the start of my day, you are so thoughtful, and I am sure other Europeans appreciate that once in a while the american day starts a little early ;-) Thank you.

Posted on May 22, 2013 10:16:20 PM PDT
I had always liked the name Jason Michael...
That is what my son would have been named if he had not been so overdue..
We had gotten tired of calling my tummy it and started calling it Chris...
Christopher for a boy and Kristina for a girl..

In reply to an earlier post on May 22, 2013 10:17:46 PM PDT
*chuckle*.... no. no... Thank You~!! ♥♥♥

@ LoB
I think that there are an enormous amount of "Donkeys" in the FB&C family, and I am so proud of them all for constantly shaking it off and taking a step up.
Keep up the good work all of you. ♥

In reply to an earlier post on May 22, 2013 10:18:39 PM PDT
Oh my, middle name too? Ok, Aiden Connor.

@ Oregon Dreamer
Didn't you know that you are one of the "Donkeys" yourself ???????
Take care and keep climbing - you can do it ♥

You're very welcome redandwhite! After reading your post to Donna it just occurred to me why not start early? For Links Only there's a reason we start at midnight as a way to mark the new day and the price changes that occur. For FB&C we start new every day and it's not an issue.

I'm so happy you can start your day off with the new thread.

In reply to an earlier post on May 22, 2013 10:25:46 PM PDT
Thank you Red... that is the plan... just sometimes life 's "donkey" likes to kick you around the block and the message Wendy relayed helps pick up the pieces and move on. :)

I wish you hope and strength to kick life 's "donkey" back ♥

All I can say, yet again, is, I just love FB&C - actually I love it all day and night too, but usually sleep at night :-)
Your start and the sun shining is just making my day all the more positive. :D
Plus - GS2 is up to 40ml every 3 hours - happy dance

Ahh... that message is so true Red. Thanks~! ♥

ETA Just had a "vision" of me running around the block ... gathering up chunks of self and super gluing them back on... Not a pretty picture, but pretty funny. LOL

In reply to an earlier post on May 22, 2013 10:46:01 PM PDT
Redandwhite, that is fantastic news about GS2! I was hoping you'd have an update for us. Have you been able to hold him yet?

In reply to an earlier post on May 22, 2013 10:47:50 PM PDT
Marilyn, I'm impressed that you can visualize yourself running around the block! LOL Wouldn't it be so great if we actually could?

In reply to an earlier post on May 22, 2013 10:54:08 PM PDT
You've got that right Wendy. ROFL

I've got a pretty impressive imagination. I've always dreamed of being able to do back flips across the mat, but in reality... NOT. Not even when I was young and limber. <g>

@ LoB
I am hoping to be able to visit again at the weekend, as I have said the hosp is not local for me so can't just pop round, wish I could, but am enjoying DD updates via text and phone, and am just so happy that progress is being made and looking forward to her being able to take him home a.s.a.p.

Exciting about Suze - wonder when her GS will arrive, bet she can't sit still with excitement, I am putting my thinking cap on about names.

@ Oregon Dreamer
Ooooh you lucky thing, I can remember being young but .... limber ???

In reply to an earlier post on May 22, 2013 11:00:25 PM PDT
I'm sure we were all limber at some age Red... now whether or not it is our conscious memory is another thing. lol
Actually, I would settle for being able to *walk* around the block now. :)
