Essay Written Number 5 Solution
Don’t Count Your Chickens Before They Hatch (Moral Story)
Once there lived a milkmaid in a small old town. Everyday early in the morning she milked the cow and sold the milk in the market. One day the milkmaid was going on her way to sell the milk.
She carried a pail on her head which was full of fresh milk.
”Today the cow has given more milk than she normally does, how good it will be if she gives some more milk everyday.
That means I will get some extra money everyday.” The milkmaid muttered happily.”With that money I will buy some hens.
I will take a good care of the hens. The hens will lay eggs and when the eggs will hatch, healthy chickens will come out from those eggs.” The young milkmaid couldn’t stop thinking.” When they grow up I will sell those chickens in the market at a good price and with that money I will buy more hens. More hens means more chickens and more money.Oh! I will become so rich.The milkmaid continued making plans. ”I am young and beautiful and now I will become rich too. Every handsome young man of the town will want to marry me but I will say yes to the man that I like the most,
she nodded her head to say yes, and as she moved her head the pail of milk fell down and broke and the milk flowed away. Poor milkmaid, she shouldn’t have counted her chickens before hatching.
Meaning of the moral- It is not good to make plans based on something before it really happens.

I am glad to have heard from you after a very long time. It’s ten years already. Yeah! I need not ask how you are faring. Your letter does all the talking. I am glad you have gained so much wealth, mentally and financially. Your achievement underscores the fact that a good business is more profitable than a government paid job, especially when the pay is in its five digits.
From my own end, so many things have been happening to me as a government worker, especially following the economic recession the nation was and is still plunged into. I basically struggle to make ends meet due to my large family size.
Just recently, the government have begun to owe workers and i am affected. I haven’t been paid in two(2) months. Yet i have to survive.
I envy you! You talked about how you have built several houses and how you have ventured into real estate. That is some feat! I still live in a rented apartment for the fact that i am not yet financially strong.
