    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 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..

    Do not value the THINGS you have in your life..
    But value WHO you have in your life!
