CONSIDER THIS CARVED IN STONE 
 

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."

     SAND AND TO CARVE YOUR BENEFITS
     IN STONE. 

     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.
