A Tale of Two Frogs
Have you ever felt like the world's against you? Your luck seems to slide away!
Well here's a little story* which helps me through those moments and believe me I have plenty of them!
There were two frogs Positive Peter and Negative Neil hopping around a farm when they came to a large churn of milk
They couldn't believe their luck , there was so much milk and it looked so fresh and creamy
Without hesitation they dived straight in and started drinking
a little while their bellies began to fill up and slowly a
terrible realisation struck them
are we going to get out?" said Negative Neil
don't know " said Positive Peter "but just keep swimming
and we will figure something out"
They swum round and round and Negative Neil kept saying " we're doomed "
Peter said " Don't worry keep swimming we'll
figure something out , we always do"
Negative Neil plunged deeper and deeper into despair and
finally he said "its
no good we're not going to make it"
Negative Neil rolled
over, sunk beneath the milk and drowned
Peter battled through this moment
of despair and forced himself to keep thinking
keep swimming Peter, I'll think of something ,
I always do"
and round he went unable to think of a solution, but believing he
would find one
but surely the milk began to curdle as it went round and round
the milk churn
what seemed like a life time the milk thickened and finally turned into
Positive Peter sat on top of
in the sun, banqueting on
the flies which were feasting on the butter,
and happy, but wondering why Neil had given up so easily
Finally Positive Peter jump from the butter and hopped back home.
