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.
.............................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. IT IS THE THOUGHT THAT MATTERS NOT WHERE YOU ARE OR WHERE THE PERSON IS.
