Sand and Stone

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 anyting, 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 gotten slapped, got stuck in the mire, and started drowning, but the friend who slapped him, 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 sane and now you write on a stone."


The friend replied "when someone hurts us, we should write it down in the sane, where the winds of forgiveness that erase it away over time. 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 sane, and 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.

Take the time to live! Do not value the things you have in your life, but value who you have in your life!
