AFRAID TO COZY UP?

DON'T BE!!

I received this today from a friend.
I am not sure if it is her composition 
or if I need to give credit to "Anonymous".
If anyone requires credit, let me know.


MORAL OF THE PORCUPINE


I never knew porcupines were so cute as babies.
Good story with a great message. 

Have you ever seen a baby porcupine?


Fable of the Porcupine

It was the coldest winter ever.  Many animals died because of the cold.

The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm. This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.

After awhile, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth.

Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive.

The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person's good qualities.

The moral of the story is:
Gotta Love those little Pink Feet!


Just learn to live with the Pricks in your life!


Oh my gosh, did Granny just say that?

Ruth, Thank you so much for the info. Did they include the story with their photos? My friend is out tonight and I couldn't wait to share, it was so cute. I am going to let the porcupine tale stand to accent the story. Thanks again for sharing.

Hey, Ginger, I have a question: I got a "LinkedIn" invite email and it had your name on it. Before I accepted, I wanted to check to see if it was legitimate, and not some scam thing. Let me know! Thanks!
Best,
Gloria
