~*~Problems always seem bigger in the dark~*~

Problems always seem bigger in the dark

A farmer came into town and asked the owner of a
restaurant if he could use a million frog legs. The
restaurant owner was shocked and asked the man where
he could get so many frog legs! The farmer replied, 
"There is a pond near my house that is full of
frogs--millions of them. They croak all during the
night and are about to drive me crazy!"
So the restaurant owner and the farmer made an
agreement that the farmer would deliver frogs to the
restaurant five hundred at a time for the next several
weeks. The first week, the farmer returned to the 
restaurant looking rather sheepish, with two scrawny
little frogs. The restaurant owner said, "Well...where
are all the frogs?" The farmer said, "I was mistaken.
There were only these two frogs in the pond. But they
sure were making a lot of noise!" Next time you hear
somebody criticizing or making fun of you, remember
it's probably just a couple of noisy frogs.
Also--remember that problems always seem bigger in the
dark. Have you ever lain in your bed at night worrying
about things which seem almost overwhelming- -like a 
million frogs croaking?
Chances are pretty good that when the morning comes,
and you take a closer look, you'll wonder what all the
fuss was about . . .
