Sharks Dolphins Octopuses Shells Fishes O.K. Today I am going to relate a story about a little fish.
There are a great many fish in the seas but this story is about just one of them and a very small one at that. Now this little fish had everything to make him contented but he was not happy. He was unhappy because he was so very small.
“If I were only larger, how much happier I could be,” he would say, over and over again. And he said it so many times that I think he believed it.
One day, he was swimming along with the rest of his school and thinking, no doubt, how much more the larger fish had to be thankful for than he, when suddenly, with no warning, they found themselves in the meshes of a great net.
There was much floundering and splashing as the net was drawn up out of the water into the sunlight, and just as its haul was be emptied into the boat, the smallest fish in the school wriggled through the mesh and slipped back into the cool water. How good it felt !
Possible Morals Be satisfied as you are. Don’t want to be what you aren’t. Be happy with what you have. Count our blessings and be thankful for them.
