an email from a Friend

an email from a Friend

couple weeks ago,, i gOt an email from one of mY Philippines friend, name Cecille Estoque, we met in the IYF 2008,,

the email made me to start looking something beyond the only eye-seeing, and I found that there always amazing things happen behind that,, and we can also realize that everything has a lesson to learn for us, a free one,,

enjoy it, here’s the email :

A mouse looked through the crack

 

in the wall to see the farmer

and his wife open a package.

 

What food might this contain?’

the mouse wondered – – –

he was devastated to discover

it was a mousetrap.

 

 

 

Retreating to the farmyard,

the mouse proclaimed the warning :

 

There is a mousetrap in the house!

There is a mousetrap in the house!’

 

 

 

 

The chicken clucked and scratched,

raised her head and said,

‘Mr.Mouse, I can tell this is a grave

concern to you, but it is of no consequence

to me. I cannot be bothered by it.’

 

 

The mouse turned to the pig and told him,

 

‘There is a mousetrap in the house!

There is a mousetrap in the house!’

 

 

The pig sympathized, but said,

‘I am so very sorry, Mr.Mouse,

but there is nothing I can do about it

but pray. Be assured you are in my prayers.’

 

 

 

 

The mouse turned to the cow and said,

 

‘There is a mousetrap in the house!

There is a mousetrap in the house!’

 

 

The cow said, ‘Wow, Mr. Mouse.

I’m sorry for you,

but it’s no skin off my nose.’

 

 

So, the mouse returned to the house,

head down and dejected,

to face the farmer’s mousetrap . . alone.

 

That very night a sound was heard

throughout the house — like the sound

of a mousetrap catching its prey.

 

 

The farmer’s wife rushed to see what was caught.

In the darkness, she did not see it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught.

 

 

The snake bit the farmer’s wife.

 

 

 

The farmer rushed her to the hospital,

and she returned home with a fever.

 

 

Everyone knows you treat a fever

with fresh chicken soup, so the farmer

took his hatchet to the farmyard

for the soup’s main ingredient.

 

 

But his wife’s sickness continued,

so friends and neighbors came to sit

with her around the clock.

 

To feed them,

the farmer butchered the  pig.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The farmer’s wife did not get well;

she died.

 

 

 

 

 

So many people came for her funeral,

the farmer had the cow slaughtered to

provide enough meat for all of them.

 

The mouse looked upon it all from his

crack in the wall with great sadness.

 

 

So, the next time you hear someone is

facing a problem and think it doesn’t

concern you, remember —-

 

when one of us is threatened,

we are all at risk.

 

We are all involved in this

journey called life.

We must keep an eye out for

one another and make an extra effort

to encourage one another.

 

 

 

SEND THIS TO EVERYONE WHO

HAS EVER HELPED YOU OUT

AND LET THEM KNOW HOW

IMPORTANT THEY ARE.

 

 

 

 

REMEMBER. . . . . .

 

 

EACH OF US IS A VITAL THREAD IN ANOTHER PERSON’S TAPESTRY;

 

OUR LIVES ARE WOVEN TOGETHER

FOR A REASON.

 

 

 

 

One of the best things to hold onto

in this world is a FRIEND.
