A bird was flying south for the winter but the air was so cold that it could not get to the warm climate before it began to freeze and it collapsed under the weight of the cold. A cow came by and dropped some manure on the freezing bird. At first, the bird was upset until it started to feel how warm the manure was! The bird got down right excited and started to sing at the thought of being thawed out by the manure. A cat was passing by and heard this sound of singing. He started digging through the manure and discovered that it was a bird. The cat ate the bird. Now there are a number of lessons in this story.
1. Not everyone who drops manure on you is your enemy
2. Not everybody who digs you out of manure is your friend
3. When you are in manure keep your mouth shut. If you live long enough you will find yourself in a pile of manure.
So makes sure you take the right perspective.
Help us continue helping others!
