CONSIDER THIS CARVED
A story tells that
two friends were walking
through the desert. During some point of
the journey they had an argument, and one
friend slapped the other one in the face.
The one who got slapped was hurt, but
without saying anything, wrote in the sand:
"TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME
IN THE FACE."
They kept on walking until they found an
oasis, where they decided to take a bath.
The one who had been slapped got stuck in
the mire and started drowning, but the
friend saved him. After he recovered from
the near drowning, he wrote on a stone:
"TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE."
The friend who had slapped and saved his
best friend asked him,
"After I hurt you,
you wrote in the sand and
now you write on
a stone. Why?"
The other friend replied:
"When someone hurts us we should write it
down in sand where winds of forgiveness
can erase it away. But, when someone does
something good for us, we must engrave it
in stone where no wind can ever erase it."
LEARN TO WRITE YOUR HURTS IN THE
SAND AND TO CARVE YOUR BENEFITS
They say it takes a minute to find a special
person, an hour to appreciate them, a day
to love them, but then an entire life to forget
them. Send this page to the people you'll
never forget. It's a short message to let
them know you'll
never forget them.
If you don't send it to anyone, it means
you're in a hurry and that you've forgotten
your friends. Take the time to live!!!
THIS DAY I HAVE BEEN HONORED WITH
THE FRIENDSHIP OF MANY WONDERFUL
PEOPLE. AMONG THEM IS YOU.
