Motivational Monday - "Two Friends"

Two friends were walking through a desert.

During some point of the journey an argument occurred
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 stone, why?"

The other 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 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 blessings in stone.
