FRIENDS


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

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 her.

After she recovered from the near drowning, she wrote on a stone:

Today my best friend
saved my life.

Today my best friend saved my life.

The friend who had slapped and saved her best friend asked her, "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 blessings in stone.

Learn to write your hurts in the sand and to carve your blessings 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.

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 phrase to the people you'll never forget. If you don't send it to anyone, it means you're in a hurry. Take the time to live!

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


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