Sand Or Stone

Untuk sahabatku..

A story was told of two friends 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
in large capital letters, “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 to sink but the friend saved him. After
he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone in
equally large capital letters, “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.
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 an entire life to forget them.
