    A Mouse Story

    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.

    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 .
    Amen.
