A Moral (I loved this!)

I got this from the SDDLightworkers yahoo group and thought it was too cute:


An old man lived alone in Minnesota. He wanted to
spade his potato garden, but it was very hard work.
His only son, who would have helped him, was in
prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and
mentioned his situation:

Dear Son,
I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't
be able to plant my potato garden this year. I hate to
miss doing the garden, because your mother always
loved planting time. I'm just getting too old to be
digging up a garden plot. If you were here, all my
troubles would be over. I know you would dig the plot
for me, if you weren't in prison.
With Love,
Dad

Shortly, the old man received this telegram: "For
Heaven's sake, Dad, don't dig up the garden!! That's
where I buried the GUNS!!"

At 4 a.m .. the next morning, a dozen FBI agents and
local police officers showed up and dug up the entire
garden without finding any guns. Confused, the old man
wrote another note to his son telling him what
happened, and asked him what to do next.

His son's reply was: "Go ahead and plant your
potatoes, Dad... It's the best I could do for you from
here."

Moral:
NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE IN THE WORLD, IF YOU HAVE
DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING DEEP FROM YOUR HEART YOU CAN
DO IT.
