A mouse trap in the house....

Posted by cbaofraleigh on April 1, 2007 at 9:59 PM
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 you 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.

REMEMBER.......

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

OUR  LIVES ARE WOVEN TOGETHER FOR A  REASON.
