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 steppingstone. We can get out of the
deepest wells
just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and
take a step up.
