The Hungry Fisherman & the Little Fish

The Hungry Fisherman & the Little Fish

 

A hungry Fisherman, who lived on the fish he caught, had bad luck one day and netted nothing but a very small fry. He was about to put it in his basket when the little Fish said:

 

"Please spare me, Mr. Fisherman! I am so small it is not worth while to carry me home. When I am bigger, I shall make you a much better meal."

 

But the Fisherman quickly put the fish into his basket.

 

"How foolish I should be," he said, "to throw you back. However small you may be, you are better than nothing at all."

 

A small gain is worth more than a large promise. It is pertinent to be thankful for and utilize what is before you, meeting business needs rather than waiting for something better to come along. Promises are only promises until put in writing!

Just you wait Debe Maxwell, CRS, it is so magical and uplifting! My mother was a grandmother to 17 grandchildren and she tried to describe it but you must feel it to understand. Your heart will get squeezed often!
