The Bond Called Friendship

mouse

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 it’s prey.

The farmer’s wife rushed to see what was caught.  In the dark, she did not know that it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught.

The snake bit the farmer’s wife.

She was rushed to the hospital and returned home with fever.

wife

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 neighbours came to sit with her around the clock.

To feed them with a meal, he butchered the pig.

The farmer’s wife did not get well, she died.

coffin

Many people came for her funeral.  The farmer had to slaughter the cow to mak sure the re is anough meat to serve everyone.

The mouse looked upon it all from the crack in the wall with great sadness.

Morale of the story :-

The next time you hear someone is facing a problem, you may think it doesnt concern you, but remember …..

when one of us is treatened, we are all at risk.

We are involved in this journey called life.

world

We must keep an eye out for one another and make an extra effort to encourage one another.

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

OUR LIVES ARE WOVEN TOGETHER FOR A REASON.
