Today’s stories come in a wide variety. From a kidnapped princess to a donkey smarter than a jealous farmer, each one has important lessons and is filled with suspense and laughter. One important lesson being that persistence is key to success. Listen carefully and you’ll catch glimpses of people being patient and being rewarded and others less patient that don’t find the same success. We hope that these stories will spark memories and stories of your own. We’ll be hearing from tellers like Jackie Kerin, Richard Martin, Octavia Sexton, and more.
