Very Good Morning ….
Thought for the day:
Honesty is often very hard. The truth is often painful. But the freedom it can bring is worth the trying
A little boy was visiting his grandparents on their farm and he was given a slingshot to play with out in the woods. He practiced for some time but he could never hit the target he had set for himself.
Getting a little discouraged, he headed back to the farmhouse for dinner. As he was walking back he saw Grandma’s pet duck. Just out of impulse, he let the slingshot fly, hitting the duck square in the head and killed it. He was shocked and grieved!
In a panic, he hid the dead duck in the wood pile; only to see his sister watching! Sally had seen it all, but she said nothing. After lunch the next day Grandma said, ‘Sally, let’s wash the dishes.’
But Sally said, ‘Grandma, Johnny told me he wanted to help in the kitchen.’ Then she whispered to Johnny, ‘Remember the duck?’
So Johnny did the dishes and later that day, Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go fishing and Grandma said, ‘I’m sorry but I need Sally to help make supper.’
Sally just smiled and said, ‘Well that’s all right because Johnny told me he wanted to help you.’ She whispered again, ‘Remember the duck?’
So Sally went fishing and Johnny stayed to help. After several days of Johnny doing both his chores and Sally’s; he finally couldn’t stand it any longer.
He went to his Grandma and confessed that he had killed the duck.
His Grandma knelt down, gave him a big hug and said, ‘Sweetheart, I know. You see, I was standing at the window the other day and I saw the whole thing, but because I love you, I forgave you. I was just wondering how long you would let Sally make a slave of you.’
Cheers To Your Success!
