Sand and Stone

A good story to share with my friends here:

Two friends were crossing the desert. At one point they had an argument, and one slap the other.

The one who get slapped, 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 man who got slapped got stucked in the mire and was drowning, but his friend save him.

After the ordeal, he wrote on the stone, "TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVE MY LIFE". The friend who had slapped him, then save his life asked, "After I slapped you, you wrote on sand, and now on the stone, why?"

His friend replied, " When someone hurts us, we should write it down on sand where the wind of forgiveness will erease it away. But when someone does something good for us, we should engrave it on stone so that it will never be forgotten."

Write your hurts in sand, but carve your blessings in stone.

Beautiful! It's a pity people keep on doing the other way round.
