A man decided to start a chicken farm and bought 24 to get started. A week later he bought another 24 and another 24 the week after that. When his friend asked how his chicken farm was coming along the man replied, “Not one of them has grown yet. I wonder if I’m planting them too deep?”
A farmer buys a rooster to service his 200 hens. When he gets the rooster into the barnyard, he tells him, “Randy, I want you to pace yourself now. You’ve got a lot of chickens to service here, and you cost me a lot of money. Have fun, but take your time.”
WHAM! Randy nails every hen in the henhouse, three or four times. Randy runs out and sees a flock of geese down by the lake. WHAM! He nails all the geese. Randy runs to the pigpen, the cow pasture — soon, he’s been on every animal on the farm.
The farmer is distraught, worried that his expensive rooster won’t even last the day.
Sure enough, the farmer wakes up the next morning to find Randy laid out flat in the middle of the yard, buzzards circling overhead.
The sad farmer shakes his head and says, “Oh, Randy, I told you to pace yourself.”
Randy opens one eye, winks, and nods towards the sky, “Shhh, they’re getting closer.”
If we could use the above analogy on our lives, we believe our lives are wonderfully exciting and fulfilling. The Hosta plant represents what we miss and the itty bitty tiny fly represents what we don’t miss about spring/summer.
Aren’t you a lucky one! You are able to grow and prosper without everyone on the planet looking to rip you out of the ground like the “lucky” 4 leaf clover. Perspective!
