This is a story about 2 friends who were walking through the desert.
At one particular point, the two got into an argument and one friend hit the other in the face.
The one was hit was hurt, but without any word, he wrote in the sand :
"TODAY MY BEST FRIEND HIT ME IN MY FACE"
They walked on until they found an oasis where they decided to have a bath. The one who had been hit got stuck in the mud and was drowning but the friend saved him.
When he came to, he carved in a stone :
"TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE"
The friend who had hit his best friend then saved him asked:
"After I've hit you, you wrote this in the sand. And after I've saved you, you carved it in the stone. Why did you do that ?"
The other friend answered:
When someone hurts us, we must write it in the sand where the wind of forgiveness can blow it away. But when someone does a good deed, we have to carve it in the stone where no wind can blow it away"
Learn to write the hurt in the sand and carve your good experiences in stone.
It is said that it takes only one minute to find extraordinary people, an hour to appreciate them, and a day to love them. But it takes a whole life to forget them.
Take the time to life !
