A life lesson incorporated in a short story

 

“An old farmer wrote to his son in prison.
– This year I won’t be able to plant potatoes because I can’t dig the ground. I know that if you were here, you would help me.

The son wrote back.
– Dad, don’t think of digging the ground because that’s where I buried the guns.

The police read the letter and the very next day, the whole ground was dug by the police looking for guns, but nothing was found.

The next day, the son wrote again.
– Now plant your potatoes dad, it’s the best I could do from here.”

 

What did you learn from this? I would love to know what you think.

  1. I absolutely love this story! Thank you for sharing it. It made me smile. Oh, and I learned that there is ALWAYS something you can do, even if the obvious thing is not an option.
