Two frogs were playing on the rafters of a dairy barn one night and fell into adjoining pails of cream. Both frogs scrambled for survival, but one fought longer and harder, and stayed the course.
When the farmer came in the next morning, he found one frog floating on the top of the cream, dead; and the other frog standing on a cake of butter – exhausted, but happy to be alive.
THE MORAL: When we let problems overwhelm us, when we stop jumping and hopping and scrambling for survival, we stop living. But when we hang in there and fight a good fight, we end up on a cake of butter.
