“EACH OF US IS A VITAL THREAD
IN ANOTHER PERSON'S TAPESTRY”
A mouse looked through the crack in the wallto 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 this 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 itbut 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 nighta sound was heard throughout the house
-- 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.
It was a venomous snake
whose tail was caught in the trap.The snake bit the farmer's wife.The farmer rushed her to the hospital.When she returned home she still had a fever.Everyone knows you treat a feverwith fresh chicken soup.So the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyardfor the soup's main ingredient:But his wife's sickness continued.Friends and neighborscame to sit with heraround the clock.To feed them,the farmer butchered the pig.But, alas,the farmer's wife did not get well...She died.So many people came for her funeralthat the farmer had the cow slaughteredto provide enough meat for all of themfor the funeral luncheon.And the mouse looked upon it allfrom his crack in the wallwith great sadness.So, the next time you hearsomeone is facing a problemand you 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 anotherand make an extra effortto encourage one another.YOU MAY WANT TO SEND THISTO EVERYONE WHO HAS EVERHELPED YOU OUT...AND LET THEM KNOWHOW IMPORTANT THEY ARE.- REMEMBER -EACH OF US IS A VITAL THREADIN ANOTHER PERSON'S TAPESTRY.OUR LIVES ARE WOVEN TOGETHERFOR A REASON.One of the best things to hold ontoIn this world is a FRIEND.
