    The Turtles

    A turtle family decided to go on a picnic. The
    turtles, being naturally slow about things, took seven
    years to prepare for their outing. Finally the turtle
    family left home looking for a suitable place. During
    the second year of their journey they found a place
    ideal for them at last!

    For about six months they cleaned the area, unpacked
    the picnic basket, and completed the arrangements.
    Then they discovered they had forgotten the salt. A
    picnic without salt would be a disaster, they all
    agreed. After a lengthy discussion, the youngest
    turtle was chosen to retrieve the salt from home.
    Although he was the fastest of the slow moving
    turtles, the little turtle whined, cried, and wobbled
    in his shell. He agreed to go on one condition: that
    no one would eat until he returned. The family
    consented and the little turtle left.

    Three years passed and the little turtle had not
    returned. Five years...six years... then on the
    seventh year of his absence, the oldest turtle could
    no longer contain his hunger. He announced that he was
    going to eat and begun to unwrap a sandwich.
    At that point the little turtle suddenly popped out
    from behind a tree shouting, "See! I knew you
    wouldn't wait. Now I am not going to go get the salt."

    [Some of us waste our time waiting for people to live
    up to our expectations. We are so concerned about what
    others are doing that we don't do anything ourselves
    .]



    The Frogs

    A farmer came into town and asked the owner of a
    restaurant if he could use a million frog legs. The
    restaurant owner was shocked and asked the man where
    he could get so many frog legs! The farmer replied,
    "There is a pond near my house that is full of frogs -
    millions of them. They all croak all night long and
    they are about to make me crazy!" So the restaurant
    owner and the farmer made an agreement that the farmer
    would deliver frogs to the restaurant, five hundred at
    a time for the next several weeks.

    The first week, the farmer returned to the restaurant
    looking rather sheepish, with two scrawny little
    frogs. The restaurant owner said, "Well... where are
    all the frogs?" The farmer said, "I was mistaken.
    There were only these two frogs in the pond. But
    they sure were making a lot of noise!"

    [ Next time you hear somebody criticizing or making
    fun of you, remember, it's probably just a couple of
    noisy frogs. Also remember that problems always seem
    bigger in the dark. Have you ever tried lyind on your bed at
    night worrying about things which seem almost
    overwhelming like a million frogs croaking? Chances
    are pretty good that when the morning comes, and you
    take a closer look, you'll wonder what all the fuss
    was about.]
