Shit Happens?

sparrow-lr

It was a very cold winter night! A sparrow had spent two nights out
with only the meagre shelter of a tree. He decided that he couldn't
survive a third night, so he left the tree to find a better shelter.

As he flew he got colder and colder, until his little wings froze solid
and he fell to the ground.

As he lay there freezing he realized that his end was near and he
prayed for death to come quickly.

Suddenly, in his semiconscious state, he had a feeling of being
enveloped in a warm covering.

He regained consciousness to find that a friendly cow had dropped a
luxurious deposit all over him.

The warmth gave him a new lease of life, and the sparrow's comfort
made him feel very happy, so he started to sing. A passing cat
heard the chirping, located the heap, carefully removed the
excrement to reveal the little sparrow, and promptly ate him up……….

There are three moral to this story: –

1. If someone shits on you, they are not necessarily your enemy.
2. If someone gets you out of the shit, they are not necessarily your
friends.
3. If you are in the shit and happy – keep your mouth shut.

To state the same facts in a polished manner: –

1. If someone harms you unknowingly, they are not necessarily your
enemy.
2. If someone tries to help you out, they are not necessarily your
friends.
3. Even if you are not in very good condition but you are happy, keep
your mouth shut and be aware of your surroundings.

We all can look at things with a different perspective and also to
have awareness of what is around us.

    What a moving analogy. Not just that, you’ve reminded me to go refill the bird feeders!
