A Good Story for Great Friends.....
Make sure you read all the way down to the last sentence...
National Friendship Day was Sunday, August 4th
pretend it's National Friendship Day every day.
There once was a little girl who had a bad temper.
|Her mother gave her a bag of nails and told her that every
time she lost her temper, she must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.
The first day the girl had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as she learned to control her anger, the
number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. She discovered it was easier to hold her temper than to drive those nails
into the fence.
Finally the day came when the girl didn't lose her temper at all.
She told her mother about it and the mother suggested that the girl now pull out one nail for each day that she was able to hold her temper.
The days passed and the young girl was finally able to tell her mother that all the nails were gone.
The mother took her daughter by the hand
and led her to the fence. She said, "You have done well, my daughter, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same.
When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one."
You can hurt a person and it won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound is still there. A verbal wound
is as bad as a physical one.
Friends are very rare jewels, indeed.
They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share words of praise and they
always want to open their hearts to us.
Pretend it's National Friendship Week.
Show your friends how much you care.
Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND, even if
it means sending it back to the person who sent it to you.
If it comes back to you, then you'll know you have a circle of friends.
You are my friend and I am honored !
Please forgive me if I have ever left a hole in your fence !
