    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 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 ONE WHO HAD BEEN
    SLAPPED GOT STUCK IN THE
    MIRE! AND STARTED DROWNING,
    BUT THE FRIEND 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 SAND AND NOW,
    YOU WRITE ON A STONE, WHY?"

    THE 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
    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.

    DO NOT VALUE THE THINGS
    YOU HAVE IN YOUR LIFE, BUT VALUE
    WHO YOU HAVE IN YOUR LIFE!
    AND IF I HAPPEN TO GET IT BACK,
    THEN I KNOW MY PLACE IN YOUR LIFE
    "Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some
    kind of battle."
