farmer parable

I'm looking for a parable I heard once about judgment. It's about a farmer and every time something seemingly bad happens to him (like his son breaks his leg on his horse) he tells the village people not to judge the situation but wait and see because some good could out of it. He always turns out to be right, like it turns out the son doesn't have to go to war like all the other villager's sons because his broken leg is still healing.

When I google for the story I only found one ridiculously long chinese version of the parable. I'm looking for a shorter version that I can repost in my LJ. Does anyone know where can find a link to the story? Thank you.
