Good day my dear Pamscribers, hope today is serving you better. Over the past week or so, I have been extremely busy and I must confess, I haven't been giving you my best, you have been deprived of your normal dose(s) of me. For this, I'm truly sorry. I hope to make it all up to you, may not be today, but I sure will. Please keep on viewing Pammie's Crib.
Today's tale is one which many of us have been told in our younger years.
In the land of the animals, many years ago, the Hare and the Tortoise had an argument who was the fastest and decided to put it to test by a race. The Hare sprinted off from the starting line and had kept a sizeable distance from the Tortoise and he decided to rest awhile. Only for him to wake up and realise that while he was asleep, the Tortoise had crossed the finish line.
The moral, "Slow and steady wins the race".
This is the version many of us were told and taught. Now, a continuation has emerged. It goes like this.
As the Hare realised he had lost, he became furious and called for a rematch which the Tortoise accepted. The hare now trained harder and on the race day, ran all the way without stopping till he got to the finish line. He waited for hours before the tortoise slowly trudged across the finish line.
The moral from this, is for you to grasp. Like in many Nollywood movies where a part three or season three is normal, same here.
Now this is another piece.
And during these times, both competitors have become friends and another race has been decided to know a champion. The terrain is different. A day is set.
The race starts and as usual, the Hare hops off, leaving the Tortoise to lag behind. He reaches a spot where a stream flows across. Remembering the Tortoise behind, he goes back and carries the Tortoise to where the stream is. The Tortoise calls out to his cousin, the Turtle who ferries both of them one at a time across the stream. On the other side, both competitors now cross the finish line together.
Moral: we all need one another.
Let us all try to give a helping hand to someone, smile, share love, you never know who your smile today will save and repay you with a hug tomorrow. Be safe and lots of e-kisses and e-hugs to you all.
Please, Tuesday's are supposed to be Guest post day. Kindly send in your guest post so we will continue the trend. Thanks and Cheers.
