    The Mouse Story with a Moral

    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 sad ness.


    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.

    Ain't that the truth!

    Everyone should be watching and letting everyone they care about (and plan for) know about the potential dangers. I'm not talking about telling everyone at work, so don't get the wrong idea. I share information with Wife and with my children.

      That's the way I took it Owl. I'll be encouraging those I love and helping them all that I can. I have found that there are a few people here that i am learning and growing to care about and will act accordingly towards them also. I will always encourage those who are here because they're here for a reason and I want to be someone who can care about them. I've been very serious and thoughtful lately and this just really spoke to me. My heart is troubled I think. This helped.

        Ensure you help yourself first and foremost....so that you are safe and secure and in a position to help others.

        You have a tender heart. No matter where I go....the range or the grocery store.... I find myself encountering folks and broach the subject of prepping for our impending calamity....usually in the form of a question.

          Thank you O.W. I have found lately that I have softened even more towards others. It's always amazing to me to find that no matter where I go I see people who need to be loved and encouraged. As you said, either the range or the grocery store, there are those who need to be challenged, whether they know it or not. I like that we challenge one another here, iron sharpens iron!
          And I'm feeling a little loopy from being sick so please if this all sounds wierd just chalk it up to Brain Freeze!
