Christy Clausen spoke of a parable that should inspire us in hard times. A farmer's mule fell into a well and was injured, so the farmer and his neighbors felt the best thing to do was to bury the mule in the well and began shoveling dirt on it. As each load of dirt hit the mule, it shook it off and stepped up and eventually was able to step out of the well -- showing that adversities seeming to bury us can result in good if we "shake it off and step up ".
