Things done in a hurry

Do you take time to do the things you do or you do them in a hurry? While some people take time to do whatever they do, other people never do. They are not patient. They are impatient and do things in a hurry. The following story is about doing things in a hurry. It is worth reading:

Once upon a time, Lady Crow and Lady Sparrow lived on the same tree. Lady Sparrow was very hard working and patient; and loved taking time to do whatever she had to do so as to do it well.

Lady Crow was different. She was very lazy and impatient and did everything in a hurry.

When the time for them to lay eggs came, Lady Sparrow took time and built her nest carefully and made it very solid.

Lady Crow did not see any sense in working so hard to build a nest. “I can build a nest in a very short time. Why trouble myself?” She asked herself. So saying, she went flying about and enjoying herself; after which she collected a few straws and rapidly made her nest. It was not a solid nest.

When the time came for both birds to lay their eggs, they did; and soon began hatching them.

Shortly after, a heavy storm came and easily blew off Lady Crow’s flimsy nest, but could not blow off the strong and solid nest of Lady Sparrow. Lady Sparrow’s nest and her fledglings were safe while Lady Crow lost everything.

What lesson do we get from this? Do you know a similar story you like to share?
