    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 that well needed to be covered up anyway; so he decided 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.

    After a few shovel loads later the farmer finally looked down the well to check if the donkey has been buried but 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.
