    All I Need To Know In Life I Learned From My Hens

    Wake up early, stay busy,
    rest when you need to, but
    always stay alert.
    Visit your favorite places
    each day.
    Scratch out a living.
    Routine is good.
    Plump is good.
    Don't ponder your purpose in
    life - your brain is too small.
    Accept the pecking order and
    know your enemies.
    Weed your garden.
    Protect your children fiercely
    - sit on them if you need to.
    Take them for walks, show them the little things and
    talk constantly.
    Make a nice nest.
    Share it with friends.
    Brag on your accomplishments.
    Don't count your chicks before
    they hatch.
    Protect your nest egg.
    Test your wings once in a while.
    Squawk when necessary.
    As you age, demand respect.
    Leave a little something for those who
    care about you.
    Chase butterflies.

    I love it!!! I have never seen that one before.

    I've seen the Everything I Need To Know In Life I Learned In Kindergarten. But I think I like the Hen one better.

    * Share everything.
    * Play fair.
    * Don't hit people.
    * Put things back where you found them.
    * Clean up your own mess.
    * Don't take things that aren't yours.
    * Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
    * Wash your hands before you eat.
    * Flush.
    * Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
    * Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
    * Take a nap every afternoon.
    * When you go out in the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together.
    * Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: the roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
    * Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die. So do we.
    * And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK.
